Lewisham is amazing – from the beautiful to the bustling, cool and vibrant – it’s a borough enriched by the world. Hundreds of artists, creatives and cultural leaders thrive here. Together, we are ready to be the Mayor of London’s Borough of Culture.
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.
