Cultural Strategy 2020 - 2030 

We launched a ten-year cultural strategy, A City Imagining, to help meet the Belfast Agenda vision for 2035, which imagines a culturally vibrant city.

The strategy sets out four strategic themes shaped by the strategy’s engagement process:

  • A City Belonging
  • A City Challenging
  • A City Creating
  • A City Exploring

There are important strategic milestones in the ten years ahead:

  • a year-long celebration of culture
  • Belfast will be bidding to become a designated a UNESCO City of Music
  • we will prepare to open our new cultural attraction, the Belfast Destination Hub, which will share the “Belfast Story” with the world

We recognise we are a work in progress. The people of Belfast have told us it is time for a change.
