The London Borough of Enfield will be making a bid to be the London Borough of Culture in 2019 or 2020.
The London Borough of Culture is a new competition by the Mayor of London for all the 32 London boroughs to apply for funding to lead a game changing cultural programme. Two winning boroughs will be named London Borough of Culture, one in 2019and one in2020. And up to six other boroughs will receive support to deliver bespoke cultural projects.
Inspired by the UK City and European Capital of Culture Programmes, London Borough of Culture will put culture at the heart of the community, celebrating the unique and distinctive creativity, character and diversity of London’s people and places.
It is a chance for boroughs to be bold and imaginative, working collaboratively across their communities and with artists, to tell their local stories. Take a look at what its all about here.
Over the coming months we will be consulting with local artists, arts organisations and our communities to help shape our bid to truly reflect the aspirations of all parts of Enfield. If you'd like to be involved please get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org , send us a tweet at @Enfield_Fest or through Facebook at @enfieldfestivals.
You can also let the Mayor of London's decision panel know just what a vibrant place Enfield is by using the hash tag #MyLocalCulture in your social media posts about our #CultureInEnfield.
