We’ve launched a comprehensive new survey to understand what the District’s cultural and creative workforce looks like – as work continues at pace on the development of our ambitious bid to be the UK City of Culture for 2025.
The survey is aimed at individuals who either live or work in the Bradford District, and who may identify with any number of roles – both paid and voluntary – within the culture, creative, and heritage industries.
The results of this anonymous survey will help the Bradford 2025 team understand where the District’s creative and cultural strengths lie, but will also crucially identify any areas that may need support or further investment. A separate survey will look to. understand the diversity and representation at management and board levels within the cultural and creative industries.
Si Cunningham, Bid Development and Communications Manager at Bradford 2025 said:
“There’s no doubt in my mind that there’s a great deal of creative talent within the Bradford District, but in order to build the strongest possible bid to be the UK City of Culture, we need to make sure that we’re getting the full picture.“
“This survey is an important piece of work which will help with the development of the bid, so I’d urge anyone who works within the creative, cultural or heritage sectors – in any capacity – to take part and have their say.”
The cultural and creative industries survey is part of a wider series of large-scale studies and research projects currently underway within the Bradford District.
The survey, which takes around five minutes to complete, is open until 27 September.
