Southwark Cultural Recovery Plan - Have your say

Closed 3 May 2021

Opened 1 Apr 2021


Help us develop the Southwark Cultural Recovery Plan.

The Revels Office are conducting research on behalf of Southwark Council to help them understand the needs of cultural partners in the borough and to explore how the council can contribute towards meeting them. In summer 2020 a Listening Exercise, attended by 40 members of the borough’s arts and cultural sector, started them on their journey. All of our questions are based upon Southwark’s 2020/2021 Economic Renewal Plan and the Southwark Stands Together programme.  Your voice will help design the Cultural Recovery Plan for Southwark and steer how the council’s budget allocation gets spent - we really appreciate your input.

There are 6 sections:  Rebalancing; Reinventing; Interconnecting; Engaging with Young People; Being a Freelancer; Moving Forward Together.

You can either respond as an individual or an individual representative of an organisation, or, if you can, you can use these questions as the basis for a conversation with colleagues, your artistic or community networks, or groups of young people you work with so that your responses reflect those wider voices as well. You can tell us at the end which of these approaches you have used so we know how wide-reaching the questionnaire answers are.

Please feel free either to answer all questions or to respond only to the sections that you – and any groups you are consulting with – feel most strongly about.
