Answer for Outer London Arts Centres

Answered By: 
The Mayor

My Culture Team can help local authority led cultural institutions by facilitating introductions and partnerships with local authority departments, arts funders and the cultural sector and providing guidance to institution staff who are developing strategic plans and building partnerships.

In addition, the culture team supports initiatives like Circulate, a network of outer London Arts Centres whose aim is to reach new audiences.  Through regeneration funding we have supported capital programmes including a new outdoor performance space on Hounslow High Street with Watermans Arts Centre. 

My London Borough of Culture Competition will provide further opportunities for local authorities and their cultural organisations to develop programmes with their communities.
