Cultural Strategy Update - Liane Holdsworth (Pac.07.09.2023/8)


Liane Holdsworth, Programme Development Manager and Coby Walsh, Project Officer, were welcomed to the meeting and provided members with an overview of the work being undertaken to create Barnsley’s Cultural Strategy.


Members received a detailed account of the sector mapping work being undertaken in collaboration with the University of Sheffield to create the Strategy.  Members were informed of the proposed member creative sessions in order for officers to gain further knowledge and an understanding of what local members felt were missing and what already exists in their areas.


Members questioned whether Barnsley had any input into part of the Yorkshire Sculpture Park that was in the Penistone East Ward.  They were informed the Long Barn which was a storage unit for the Sculpture Park which was in the Penistone East Ward, was being developed to also house some artists studios.


Members were informed that they would be invited to Engagement Events in the near future.  


RESOLVED that thanks be given for the presentation and the update be noted.
