What can arts and community organisations do?

London Borough of Culture 2021 banner

We are proposing to deliver a programme of up to twelve themed months for our London Borough of Culture bid. This will be driven by the creative energy of up to twelve separate artistic directors using a common high-level framework that is yet to be decided.

Artistic ideas

We engaged with the creative community in the Royal Borough of Greenwich to help shape our bid and received fifty high-level outline themes that aimed to deliver the ambition and creative requirements of the London Borough of Culture application.

A shortlist of thirty one ideas were put to public vote and due to the high quality and ambition of the responses over twenty were selected to be included in our bid to deliver a year of culture.   

We submitted our bid to the Mayor of London on Monday 28 October.

Join the social media conversation

Help us continue to create a buzz around the culture in Royal Greenwich by posting photos, videos and comments from any events you're hosting using the hashtags #MyLocalCulture#GrinforGreenwich and #GM_T. Encourage your participants and attendees to also post using the hashtags. This will help strengthen our bid by showing the Mayor of London how much the people, organisations and community groups across the borough value and would like to continue investing in our culture.
