A collective voice for arts & culture in the West Midlands.
Culture Central is sector support organisation and collective voice for Arts and Culture in the region. They drive strategy with an ambitious, inclusive and relevant vision for the role of the arts and artists in society. Their weekly newsletter is packed with information relevant to anyone working in the creative sector in the region.
Culture Central advocates for the sector, acting as a catalyst to generate radical new approaches to investment and sustainability and brokering cross-sector collaborations and partnerships. They work with the sector to develop audiences, provide and promote opportunities for learning, build networks and nurture employment opportunities and share expertise from the talented, diverse communities in the region.
Since the outbreak of Covid-19, they have spearheaded the ‘Cultural Response Unit’, to create a sector led response to the changing situation. As part of this, they have co-ordinated several ‘Weekender’ events, and have responded to Black Lives Matter’s call for action through launching ‘More than a Moment’, with and for Black Creatives.
