Adur & Worthing Councils are preparing a Cultural Strategy for the joint area. The purpose of the Strategy is to determine how best to support and develop the cultural offer which is so important to the local economy as well as the emotional and social wellbeing of residents and visitors. We believe that a Cultural Strategy will also help us to attract external funding to support develop and promote culture as well as give a clear direction as to how to create effective links and partnerships between the private, public and community and voluntary sectors.
Culture is defined widely and includes: the performing, visual and public arts; media, fashion, video and film; museums, archives, libraries and literature; sports events, facilities and development; the built and social heritage, landscape, countryside recreation, parks, open spaces; children’s play, festivals and informal leisure pursuits entertainment and events
There are four priorities for Culture Everyone:
Priority 1 - Education and participation: to stimulate participation in and access for all to cultural activities and learning opportunities, removing barriers to culture.
Priority 2 - Environmental impact: to contribute to a high quality natural and built environment by promoting and boosting social and cultural regeneration.
Priority 3 - Creative and cultural sector: to contribute to the development of the sector through co-ordination and support.
Priority 4 - Partnership: to develop strong links with partners and stakeholders in order to develop the quality and number of activities taking place.
In February and March 2013, Adur & Worthing Councils asked you how you want us to support, promote and develop what you enjoy about culture.
The Consultation Report is included below:
The Consultation Strategy will be added here by the end of October.

Adur & Worthing Councils and our partners, through the Culture Everyone consultation, have identified the need for a small business start-up units within the area.
Through the Strategy's accompanying Action Plan, we are keen to investigate potential sites and sources of external funding for the creation of a cultural business hub.
We need to carry out further research with the cultural sector in order to take this forward and the questionnaire here is intended to ascertain more specific requirements of cultural business and results will be used as an evidence base for funding bids.
The questionnaire should take no more than a couple of minutes to complete and should be submitted to us by 31st December 2013.
The consultation officer deals with:
- all consultations
- Viewpoint (Adur Resident's Panel)
- Talkback (Worthing Resident's panel)
- Adur's Pot of Gold
