The development of the Strategic Framework for Culture in Carlisle was initiated in 2019 by a small steering group of Carlisle City Council, Prism Arts, Tullie House Museum & Art Gallery Trust and the University of Cumbria.
Supported with funding from the Arts Council England, a series of themed consultation events took place with a wide range of stakeholders to identify how through culture we could combine collectively to help drive and sustain the future growth of the city region.
This was followed up by a focussed ‘play-back’ event to disseminate initial thoughts and areas of priority and made a significant contribution to the document. The consultation was designed to not only engage existing cultural specialists but to encourage a diverse range of voices representing diversity, business, education, health, individual and freelance artists and creative practitioners to contribute to shaping the future arts and cultural agenda.
