Culture Strategy Development Update Report

Report of the Executive Director – City Futures



The committee considered a report of the Executive Director, City Futures setting out the progress towards the full city Culture Strategy; work on resubmitting to two of the funds listed; and the imminent establishment of a Cultural Pipeline Fund.



In the September 2022 ‘Strategic Approach to Culture’ report, the following were proposed as part of a new emphasis on culture in Sheffield:

       Formally adopt the Sheffield Culture Collective Strategy on behalf of Sheffield City Council as an interim, while SCC works with partners to develop a full city Culture Strategy.

       Note the submission of three Expressions of Interest to the Create Growth Fund; Cultural Development Fund 3; and Place Partnership Fund.

       Support in principle the creation of a Cultural Feasibility Fund    through external funding sources such as SYMCA.




RESOLVED UNANIMOUSLY: that the Economic Development and Skills Policy Committee note the progress made in:


       developing a new Culture Strategy for Sheffield

       resubmitting bids for Create Growth and the Place Partnership Fund

       Setting up a Cultural Pipeline Fund, resourced through South Yorkshire

       Mayoral Combined Authority’s Feasibility Fund.
