Wandsworth Arts and Culture Strategy Consultation

Closed 31 Aug 2021

Opened 2 Mar 2021


Arts and Culture play a vital role in making Wandsworth a prosperous, healthy and attractive place to live. Arts and Culture brings people together and provides a sense of vitality and belonging. This draft Arts and Culture Strategy is Wandsworth Council’s commitment to a long-term creative vision for the Borough. We aim to be bold and ambitious, and to embed Arts and Culture at the heart of Council’s work.

We, Wandsworth Council, see ourselves as playing a vital role in supporting, coordinating, convening and promoting the Borough’s cultural life. We aim to use our cultural assets and programmes as the building blocks of place-shaping, and as key elements within new developments and regeneration. We look to work with partners to ensure a strong and thriving arts and cultural offer that benefits not only individuals, but also families and wider communities, as well as contributing to the vitality of the Borough’s neighbourhoods and town centres. Through collaboration with our cultural and creative practitioners, freelancers and organisations, we animate our local economies, foster our strong sense of community ownership, raise aspirations, and support residents in leading healthy and happy lives. Through this strategy we set out our ambitious offer for Arts and Culture within the Borough, and our vision to establish Wandsworth as one of the country’s leading examples of how to integrate cultural opportunities and engagement into the delivery of all the Council’s priorities.

Supporting and developing the artists, creatives and audiences both of today and of tomorrow; this Arts and Culture Strategy sets out our draft key principles and aims for the sector between 2021–2031 and we would welcome your comments on our plans so far.
