Shropshire Council, acting for the Cultural Strategy for Shropshire Working Group, is seeking to appoint a consultant to develop a new Cultural Strategy for Shropshire.
We are specifically seeking help with collating the existing evidence base, consultation with a broad range of stakeholders and development of a new draft strategy for public consultation.
We anticipate that the consultant’s support will be broken down in to three phases:
Phase 1: Collation of existing evidence base, working with Shropshire Council’s Insight and Intelligence team
Phase 2: Consultation with a broad range of stakeholders, working with the Cultural Strategy Working Group
Phase 3: The creation of a draft strategy for public consultation
The Cultural Strategy Working Group (CSWG) wants to develop a new Cultural Strategy that reflects an ambition for culture to be a major driver in support of five broad objectives:
1. Driving economic prosperity
2. Strengthening local communities
3. Promoting health and well being
4. Supporting lifelong learning
5. Supporting climate and environmental change mitigation
More background, which should be read as part of this opportunity, is provided in appendix 1.
The Working Group is made up of organisations and individuals who collectively have a strategic cultural overview, are from different cultural sectors and provide a good geographical spread. The Terms of Reference, including membership of the Cultural Strategy Working Group is available in appendix 2.
