Birmingham City Council’s Cultural Development Service supports a range of activities which enable local people to engage with and shape arts and culture on their doorsteps, whilst supporting the growth and development of artists and companies working in this area.
To help achieve our outcomes for the city, we commission not-for-profit organisations to deliver high quality arts activities that engage Birmingham residents.
These activities will contribute to our outcomes by;
- Enabling people to have access to high quality cultural activities in neighbourhoods (Birmingham Cultural Strategy 2016 to 2019)
- Ensuring that all children and young people have opportunities to engage with a diverse range of high quality arts and cultural experiences at every stage of their development and which they value (Birmingham Cultural Strategy 2016 to 2019)
- Helping people become healthier, especially relating to physical activity and mental wellbeing (A great city to grow old in)
- Supporting better, more efficient services – shaped to address local need and requirements (Recognising the importance of neighbourhoods)
