1. Support Newham’s bid to become London’s Borough of Culture

Youth, diversity and community will be at the heart of a bid by Newham Council to become London’s Borough of Culture. 

The Borough of Culture initiative has been launched by the Mayor of London with two boroughs to be selected, one for 2019 and one for 2020. Those successful will receive £1.1 million to help deliver bespoke cultural projects. 

Newham is full of creative people and organisations and we want to create even more opportunities for our communities to get involved in art and culture. 

We want our residents, businesses and cultural organisations to influence the vision of our bid and its content and how the community can be involved in its delivery.
