City of Culture
Southampton has set its sights on City of Culture 2025 – an idea that has captured the imagination of stakeholders across the city as a vehicle to bring definition and focus to our shared future ambitions for the city. Significant work is needed over the next three years to prepare for the bidding process demanding the development of both the soft and hard infrastructure as well as sustained focus and distributed leadership to ensure adequate time and resources are invested from the earliest stages of planning.
SCDT is developing the momentum and necessary partnerships and buy in working closely with SCC and partners at the University of Southampton and Solent University. Planning and research are already underway as we convene partners to sign the Memorandum of Understanding.
