Culture strategy

Culture Everywhere

Culture Everywhere outlines the ambitions for art and culture in the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham for the next five years.

It is the result of extensive conversations with a range of stakeholders including cultural organisations, the council, developers, local business and schools.

This new vision has been developed to support the work of everyone working across the borough including the council, cultural organisations, voluntary and business organisations.

Culture Everywhere sets out a vision for the ethos and governance of culture across the borough.

It should be understood within the context of three other council frameworks and action plans: heritage, libraries and parks and open spaces which each share this core vision for culture but also require specific strategic priorities.

This document connects with a raft of strategic initiatives and research so that this vision for culture is joined up with national and local thinking.

Included is a set of commitments, strategic priorities and deliverables.
