Culture bid seeking applications for advisory panel

The team behind Lancashire's ambition to become the UK City of Culture 2025 is looking to recruit eight specialist advisers to help compile a winning bid.

Culture sector experts are being sought who have experience in curating arts and cultures, programming for culture led regeneration or programming for major events with expertise or an interest in our four discreet topics for cultural regeneration: Digital, Nature, Connection and Living.

Debbi Lander, bid director of Lancashire 2025 said "The success of the bid will be in large part due to the quality, ambition, appeal and deliverability of our programme - all aspects considered by curators, programmers and directors in cultural organisations and settings every day.

"To ensure the success of our bid and the transparency of the selection process we are now looking for experts inspired by our ambition to craft a new and inclusive identity as the Virtual City of Lancashire in which achievements and challenges offer tangible opportunities to re-imagine the emerging cities of the future, and re-invigorate the role that culture-led regeneration can play in realising this vision for regions throughout the UK and beyond.

“We believe their combined experience and expert eyes, cast across a wide range of new ideas for a programme developed on the theme of The Way We Live, with four discreet topics to inspire cultural regeneration through new ideas to deliver a step-change in: Living, Connection, Nature and Digital, will take us one step closer to winning UK City of Culture for Lancashire.”
