Buckinghamshire Culture has emerged in response to a need to better connect, celebrate and enhance the creative and cultural organisations in Buckinghamshire and the great work that they do. We are now a Charitable Incorporated Organisation with charity number: 1196317.
In 2018, spearheaded by Buckinghamshire Council we collectively started work on a Cultural Strategy for the county, which outlined the need for a new cultural partnership to take this work forward. Our partnership is made up of representatives from creative and cultural organisations, higher and further education, schools, economy and growth, place-making and health and wellbeing alongside artists and museum professionals.
Buckinghamshire Culture is now ready to lead the Cultural Strategy and energise the sector to learn, connect and build together.
By working together we aim to:
- Increase opportunities for arts and cultural experiences and participation for everyone
- Connect and build the creative and cultural sector, developing partnerships and joint working
- Attract investment and funding for joint projects
- Build capacity and enhance sustainability for the sector
- Raise the profile of creativity and culture in Buckinghamshire and its relevance to our daily lives
- Ensure creativity and culture enhance the quality of all our places
You can download the Buckinghamshire Cultural Strategy from our Cultural Strategy page.
Buckinghamshire Culture is supported with funding from Rothschild Foundation and Buckinghamshire Council.
