The council is urging local people to help shape the future of culture and art in the Borough.

A quick online survey has been launched that will help the council to develop a cultural vision for the Borough and set priorities for the future.

It will also help the council to understand how it can develop a diverse creative place that is known for its exciting experiences with a vibrant arts and culture scene.

Cllr Kevin Robinson, cabinet member for business, culture and tourism, says: “Southend-on-Sea already has a wonderfully rich, diverse and vibrant cultural environment and we want to ensure that we harness that now and into the future.

“We want to understand what culture means to people, what council funded facilities they already attend, and how they feel about the current cultural offer in Southend.

“The results of this work will also help us to understand how easy it is for our cultural facilities and events to be attended and accessed and find out what ideas people have for culture in the Borough. I would urge people to let us know their views and have their say.”
