The curtains have been raised on a new plan for culture and creativity in the borough, through the agreement of our new Creative Strategy.
The strategy, approved by our councillors at a Full Council meeting last night (Wednesday 24 January), looks at culture and creativity at a broad level including art, dance and heritage across both formal and informal settings including the community and voluntary sector, and sets out a number of recommendations, which will be developed into an action plan for delivery.
Cllr Parveen Rani, Portfolio Holder for Street Scene, Parks, Leisure and Culture, said: “Hertsmere’s creative industries, in particular film and television, are a key part of our cultural heritage and this strategy allows us to develop an action plan which best serves the local community.
“Creativity has a positive impact on the quality of life of all our communities, with culture, leisure and related services shaping Hertsmere to be a place where people want to live, work and visit.
“Great plans are waiting in the wings for developing the culture and creativity offer in the borough.”
The strategy sets out a number of recommendations, covering the development of a cultural offer, improved communication and promotion, development of the voluntary sector, support for creative businesses and support for young people.
