Collecting your opinions about future cultural activity in Peterborough.

This short survey takes about 5 minutes to complete. It asks your experience and hopes about arts and culture in Peterborough. The area (not just the Council) is working to put together a new Cultural Strategy to help guide decisions and any expenditure over the next ten years.
 
It is really difficult to predict the future right now. We know that people in Peterborough really want to connect, to continue the caring that we’ve seen during the pandemic. We know people enjoy their open spaces and events there. And we know that the city is going to grow and change over the next ten years, and we need to make that positive for everyone.
 
There are no ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ answers – and we cannot make any promises about what might happen. Your answers during February 2021 will be added into research that already exists and other consultations to draw up a draft Strategy by the spring. This will then be discussed more between April and June before being debated by the new City Council after the May elections.

Note that all your answers are anonymous. 

Question Title

* 1. What are the three things you are looking forward to the most once we can go out together?

Question Title

* 2. What is the biggest challenge you see in being able to do those things?

Question Title

* 4. What single event, investment or cultural innovation would you like to see most in Peterborough over the next 10 years?

You might want to see an arts centre for young people, or a better way of finding out what’s on.

We’d like all your ideas and ambitions. (250 characters)
