In the coming months the Department for Culture, Media and Sport will be launching proposals for a new, far-reaching cultural strategy, the first in 50 years, that reflects the world today. This discussion platform is for you to share and discuss your ideas under each of the strategy's main themes and challenges below.
From the arts to museums, galleries and heritage, DCMS is the government department that brings together all aspects of culture to ensure #OurCulture contributes to vibrant and healthy communities across the UK.
Want to know more? Read about the upcoming White Paper and its key themes in the Culture Minister Ed Vaizey's blog.
We want you to have your say. You can do this by posting your ideas and comments against each of the four main challenges as we share them in the coming months:
Places: Throughout September we're looking for ideas on how how culture brings together communities across the UK.
Funding: October's theme looks at building financial resilience in cultural organisations and new funding models.
People: In November the focus will be on how people engage with culture and how to ensure everyone can access and experience culture.
Cultural Diplomacy: Our final theme for December explores working with our cultural institutions to promote Britain abroad.
You can join the conversation in the first challenge below, which looks at Places.
We want to hear what matters to you and we're seeking innovative proposals that spark lively debates and conversations, which demonstrate your passion for our culture and heritage and how we can ensure they are equipped to adapt and thrive for future generations.
You can also join the conversation and share you postings on your own social media channels, using the #OurCulture hashtag.
