Stategic aims

To achieve this vision for the arts, we have identified four strategic aims:

  1. Sense of place - to develop Lewisham's identity as a vital, creative place to live, work and learn through innovative and sustainable design and the provision of high quality creative destinations.
  2. Creative economy - to develop and strengthen the sustainable economy for Lewisham through the support and encouragement of the cultural and creative sector.
  3. Creativity and skills - to support active participation in the arts and promote opportunities for children and adults to develop their creativity and acquire new skills.
  4. Active, cohesive communities - to harness the power of the arts to support community cohesion, wellbeing and community safety.
