Request for proposals

Deadline: Monday 13 May

The government chose Bradford to be just the fourth UK City of Culture in May 2022. It’s a huge honour. It’s a massive responsibility. And it’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

We’re building an organisation from scratch to plan and present 12 unforgettable months of creativity, culture and the arts across Bradford District. From New Year’s Day to New Year’s Eve, 2025 is set to explode with more than 1,000 shows, exhibitions and events – by and for everyone, with much of it completely free to see.

Bradford 2025 will be a celebration of Bradford, its cultures and its people – right here, right now. From artists to businesses, schools to community groups, we’re inviting people across Bradford to help us create a year of culture that could only happen here.

We’re looking to appoint a partner who can deliver Access and Inclusion support, consultancy, and reporting for our creative programmes, across Bradford 2025.

Access Framework for Bradford 2025

We frame disability through the social model, acknowledging that it is systems, assumptions and environments that create the disabling barriers.

People should feel welcome and comfortable engaging with events.

Access is made possible when physical and sensory, cultural, intellectual, financial, emotional, geographic and atitudinal barriers are removed or reduced.

  • Deadline for proposals is Monday 13 May.
