Cultivating spaces for extraordinary artists

Cultural Strategy for Shropshire - Have your Say

Vibrant Shropshire, the new draft Cultural Strategy, is out for public consultation

​​​​​​​Shropshire Council would like feedback from as many people as possible on the draft strategy. Please complete the online survey and also pass the link onto your networks.

The survey will remain live until the end of December.​​​​​​​

“Vibrant Shropshire” was developed in partnership with key stakeholders including the Arts Council and the local cultural sector, through the Cultural Strategy Working Group. This is a strategy not just for Shropshire Council, but the wider cultural sector to take ownership of.

The new strategy sets out the ambition and priorities for the cultural sector in the Shropshire Council area over the next ten years. It aims to raise further awareness of the importance of culture, leisure and tourism.

The importance of culture to our physical and mental health has been highlighted by the current pandemic. This strategy aims to give the guidance needed to create a place where extraordinary and everyday cultural experiences are a source of inspiration for all.

The new strategy emphasises the importance of culture to the quality of life, health and wellbeing and the economy, and the role it plays in developing happier and healthier people and communities.
