Cabinet is being asked to approve a new cultural strategy for Birmingham when it meets tomorrow (April 19).
Once approved by cabinet, the document will then go forward to full council for adoption later in the year. It will form part of the council’s corporate policy framework.
The strategy was developed through partnership working with the cultural sector and it is intended that it will be delivered via a partnership-based arrangement, with a proposal to establish a new Partnership for Culture.
The partnership would include the chairs of the various working groups which helped develop the document, alongside representatives from organisations with an interest in the continued cultural development of the city.
Jacqui Kennedy, Acting Strategic Director for Place, said: “This important document sets out a framework for cultural development in Birmingham between now and 2019.
“Crucially, because Birmingham’s thriving and vibrant cultural life encompasses people from so many different walks of life, we have been working closely with partners across the city to develop this document and will continue to do so in taking it forward and delivering its objectives.”
