The continuing pandemic has affected all our lives profoundly and the arts and cultural heritage sector has been especially affected with many events cancelled and venues closed. As we plan for recovery High Peak Borough Council in partnership with High Peak CVS wants to know how best we can assist you to emerge stronger and healthier after the pandemic.
The Council supports many cultural and artistic events and venues already and is keen to do more to work in partnership with community organisations across the Borough. High Peak CVS already works closely with many arts and cultural groups and can provide support to help groups grow and thrive.
Cllr Keith Savage (HPBC) is leading on the development of an Arts & Cultural Heritage Strategy for the High Peak. As part of this partnership, we want to investigate the possibility of establishing a Borough-wide Arts & Culture Forum, open to any group with an interest.
By taking part in this 10 minute survey you can help us to identify which events, venues and community organisations are still active in arts work, how they have coped through the pandemic, what their plans for the future are and what support is needed.
The results of the survey will be used to explore ways in which we might better work together and identify what immediate actions we can take to safeguard our valuable arts and cultural resources, to the benefit of all.
We look forward to hearing from you and working with you.
Please complete this survey by the end of February and please share with other organisations you feel should be included.
