Have your say on the future of culture in Preston

Preston map

- Do you feel passionately that Preston should be THE place to go in Lancashire for great arts and culture?

- Were you inspired by (or took part in) all the amazing music, dance, comedy, theatre, and special events that took place all over Preston during Guild 2012?

- Do you want opportunities to experience and take part in the arts in your neighbourhood?

If you care about culture in Preston, this is your chance to have your say on the future of culture in our city!

 


A Cultural Framework for Preston for 2013 - 17 is currently being developed.
We are working with Adrienne Taylor of Panacea Associates to find out what local people want from culture in Preston. The results will then inform the framework.

There are two ways you can tell us what you think:

1. Complete our short survey – follow the link below:    
https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/PrestonCulturalFramework

Please pass on the link on to your friends, family, and professional networks and ask them to complete the questionnaire as well.
The survey closes on 18th January.

2. Test out the draft Cultural Framework
We will be holding workshops to test the draft framework during the first week in February which will be open to all, whether you’re involved in the arts or not.

Monday 4th Feb.  3 – 5pm, venue to be confirmed
Tuesday 5th  Feb, 6 – 8pm, UCLan
Thursday 7th Feb, 12 – 2pm, Avenham Pavilion
