Brighton & Hove City Council has set up a cross-party inquiry to look at the cultural provision for children and young people in the city.
Established by the Council’s Culture, Tourism and Enterprise Overview and Scrutiny Committee members of the Panel are Councillor Melanie Davis, Councillor Rachel Fryer, and Councillor Carol Theobald .
Chair of the Panel Councillor Davis said, “Brighton and Hove has a formidable reputation as a city of culture. We have fantastic cultural events on all year round, including those for children. But we felt it was time to take a look at what was on offer and specifically any gaps there are so we can make things even better”.
The panel will be looking at cultural services for children and young people across the city whether they are provided by the council, businesses or the voluntary and community sector.
The panel will be focusing on those areas where there might be gaps in provision, and identifying areas of good practice with a view to making recommendations for the future of cultural services for children and young people in the city.
The Panel plans to hold public meetings on:
- March 31st at 4.30pm
- April 28th at 11.00am
- May 19th at 11.00am
- June 30th at 4.30pm
Anyone wishing to contribute to the consultation should contact the scrutiny team at the City Council on 01273 291084 or email email@example.com
The move comes just ahead of the city’s Children’s Festival, which takes place between April 12 and 18.
