Cheltenham people are being asked for their views as part of the town’s biggest ever survey into culture and creativity.
Cheltenham Culture Board’s survey asks people what cultural activities they enjoy most and what would they like to do more of. It also asks about what could be done to support people to engage more in cultural and creative activities in the future.
The survey also asks for feedback on the board’s draft strategy particularly in terms of the board’s proposed vision for culture and a set of six big ideas where the board hope to take action. All the feedback will help inform the board’s draft culture strategy.
Ali Mawle, chair of Cheltenham Culture Board and co-CEO of Cheltenham Festivals, said: ‘’The new culture board has made significant headway in building a strong alliance across Cheltenham’s cultural and creative communities. There is excitement about working together to make culture and creativity central to the economic and social recovery of Cheltenham so that everyone has the chance to thrive.”
The survey runs until 12 August; responses will then be collated and used to help shape the final culture strategy and action plan that will go to Cabinet in autumn 2022.
We really hope that visitors and supporters of Holst Victorian House will join us in highlighting the importance of Heritage in Cheltenham.
