Culture Central is a new collective voice and development organisation for culture in the Birmingham City region.
Culture Central is committed to developing and leading projects, alongside other leadership bodies in the city region, that have the potential for a positive impact on the sector – and on the region.
The body is for all organisations involved in making the Birmingham City Region an internationally recognised place for culture and creativity. Its understanding of culture is inclusive and broad covering everything from heritage to ballet, bhangra to virtual reality.
Culture Central’s purpose is to place culture and creativity at the centre of the way the region works. A collective approach will make sure cultural and creative industries can play a central role in important strategic initiatives relating to skills, economy and community development.
