Culture in Nottingham Workshop
Help build a 10-year vision for culture in your city
Monday 12 December, 4-6pm (arrivals from 3.50pm)
Level 4 Foyer, Royal Concert Hall Nottingham
We’re delighted to invite you to a workshop on Monday 12 December to explore the cultural life of Nottingham and develop plans for the city’s 10-year Cultural Statement and Framework.
Nottingham benefits from a rich cultural offer and diverse networks of creative makers, participants, audiences and organisations. We are working with Nottingham’s residents, and community, voluntary, business, education and public sector organisations, to consider what is most distinctive about the city, and how culture can support and celebrate this distinctiveness.
What do you think makes Nottingham distinctive? What does culture in Nottingham mean to you? How would you like Nottingham to look and feel in 10 years time? How would you like to get involved and help make those changes happen?
This workshop will provide an opportunity for you to tell us what makes Nottingham unique and imagine how to make it even more special in the future.
Please RSVP here and spread the word - we’d love to hear from as many Nottingham voices as possible. We’ll also be live tweeting during the event at #CultureNottingham.
We look forward to welcoming you to the Royal Concert Hall on 12th December.

Nottingham Strategic Cultural Partnership with Bird & Gorton
About the Strategic Cultural Partnership
The SCP want to drive forward a vision and role for culture in the city and they have collectively commissioned the Framework as part of that ongoing work. SCP members include Nottingham Lakeside Arts (run by the University of Nottingham), Theatre Royal and Royal Concert Hall Nottingham, Dance4, Nottingham Trent University, Nottingham Contemporary, Primary Studios, Nottingham Playhouse, The Creative Quarter, Broadway, New Art Exchange, Nottingham City Council, UNESCO City of Literature, City Arts Nottingham, Inspire Nottingham and the Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust.
The SCP are working in collaboration with Nottingham City Council and What Next? Nottingham on the Framework and it is funded by Arts Council England.
About the 10 Year Cultural Statement and Framework
Ideas explored in these workshops will feed into the design of a 10-year Cultural Statement and Framework for Nottingham to support and empower the city’s ambitions to create jobs, to grow businesses, to bring funding and investment into the city and to encourage tourism.
At the heart of these ambitions is a commitment to create opportunities for local people of all ages and from all areas of the city to engage with Nottingham’s culture and heritage.
We will be hosting three more events in January 2017 to continue to identify shared priorities and opportunities for culture in the city.
12 January, Strelley Social Club, time tbc
16 January, New Art Exchange, time tbc
18 January, Meadows Art Gallery, time tbc
