What’s it all about?

Tower Hamlets is bidding for the London Borough of Culture Award which is currently undergoing consultation with organisations and individuals across the arts, community and business sectors. Find out what changes and opportunities are being proposed.

The Council’s Arts, Parks and Events team is continuing to build on a range of partnerships that it has developed over the years with key arts and events organisations across the voluntary, charitable and community sectors. The team has also helped support or deliver a substantial number of arts-based projects and events with advocacy and guidance, small grants, marketing and more. We are utilizing these experiences and relationships to deliver our fifth arts networking evening.

Tower Hamlets remains a thriving hub of activity for the creative sector and home to so many high calibre and firmly established, as well as emerging, arts organisations. Many of these will be in attendance in order to share some of their expertise and professional know-how!
