Lewisham's bid for London Borough of Culture
London Borough of Culture is a new initiative devised by London’s Mayor Sadiq Khan as part of his plans to support the arts in London. The competition will see the capital’s 32 boroughs bid for more than £1m of funding to stage a programme of cultural events and initiatives.
London Borough of Culture will transform places through arts, heritage and culture. It will enable London’s Boroughs to build on what’s happening already, be ambitious and deliver change for the long term.
The deadline for submissions is 1 December 2017. Two winning boroughs will be named London Borough of Culture, one in 2019 and one in 2020. And up to six other boroughs will receive support to deliver bespoke cultural projects. The announcement will be made in early 2018 and winning boroughs will then spend time preparing themselves to deliver their Borough of Culture programme.
