Richmond's Culture Review

Closed 23 Feb 2021

Opened 19 Jan 2021


Richmond Council are developing a new vision for culture for the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames and we want to hear from you!

Now more than ever we recognise the value of arts, parks, sports and libraries in enriching and improving the lives of residents and visitors and the opportunities these services present in supporting us to manage some of the current and future challenges the borough faces.

Our aim is to develop a ten-year vision and set of priorities for arts, parks, sports and libraries (currently known as the ‘cultural services’) in Richmond and we would like your input in helping inform and guide this process.

Whether you work in the culture sector; use a local library or park, are a member of a local fitness centre or sports club, attend local theatre, arts centres, museums or galleries, have a child enrolled in swimming lessons, OR are someone who does not currently take part in any of the above, we are keen to hear your thoughts.

We are particularly interested in:

  • Hearing what you think / understand ‘culture’ to be
  • How and why you currently use or participate in arts, parks, sports and library services
  • Reasons why you may not currently use or participate in these services

Your responses will help us understand what is important to residents over the coming decade so that we can identify how cultural services can support this and create an innovative and diverse cultural offer which aims to empower, enable and inspire all residents.

What happens next?

After the survey closes the information will be used to inform a new vision and set of priorities for culture in the borough.

There may be further opportunites to be involved further in this process. If you would like to be invited to participate in any further conversations, please ensure you include your contact details at the end of the survey.
