New Cultural Strategy for Belfast 2020 - 2030

We are in the process of developing options for a new approach to long-term cultural development in the city. We value your voice, and seek contribution from all sectors (art, tourism, business, heritage, sport, hospitality, creative industries and more) to collectively develop an authentic narrative for our city. Throughout this process we hope to engage with you in a number of ways and we hope that you will be able to contribute in whatever way suits you best.

To begin this process we are running a series of conversations to help form our new cultural strategy for this city and we want you to join us.

There are a range of times and locations available for you to choose from, we are only asking for an hour of your time and we will be providing food and refreshments at each session to help the conversation flow. Please also share this around your contacts, we want to involve as many creative voices a possible.

There are only 10 places in each session, to book your place just click on the venue link below that best suits you.

Join us for the Culture Forum

The Culture Forum is an annual gathering for the cultural and creative sectors, alongside key stakeholders and partners in the city. This year we will be taking the opportunity to present and explore the themes that have been gathered during the Your City, Your Say process and have fed into the draft ‘Cultural Statement’ for the city. Everyone is welcome to attend this forum (whether you participated in Your City, Your Say or not) as we want a wide range of voices represented at this event. 

The Culture Forum will take place on Monday 28 January. 

State of the sector survey

For a number of years we have been asking the sector to complete an online survey to help give us a better understanding of the capacity and challenges that face you. Up to date information is critical to help inform key priorities in the new cultural strategy. If you represent an organisation in the sector we would appreciate you taking the time to complete this short survey.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch. To keep up to date with all engagement activity feeding into the new Cultural Strategy, visit www.belfastcity.gov.uk/culture
