The Culture in Our City Partnership (CioC - name to be confirmed) is the successor body to the ABCD Cultural Recovery Plan for Brighton & Hove. University of Sussex, Brighton & Hove City Council and Brighton Dome & Brighton Festival have come together to ensure the continuation of Project Management support for the new body. The role will be hosted at University of Sussex and will report into and be supported by the Arts Development Team at BHCC.
The ABCD Plan:
The disruption of the pandemic brought together over 100 creatives in Brighton & Hove to explore how arts & culture can be more inclusive, sustainable, and collaborative in the City in future. This resulted in a recovery plan that runs to the end of 2022 and has so far raised over £500k for the cultural sector in the City. The plan is overseen by an independent group of people formed of a Governance Group and a series of Working Groups. The overarching aims are to create paid work and professional opportunities for creative workers in the City, to develop a more inclusive cultural offer and to encourage partnership working to strengthen the creative sector in the long term. Partners include Brighton & Hove City Council, University of Sussex, Arts Council England, Brilliant Brighton Business Improvement District, and many funded arts organisations in the City.
Details of the Programme to date are on http://cultureinourcity.com/abcd.
The Culture in Our City Partnership will reflect and represent the cultural sector in Brighton & Hove, engage with other relevant networks and stakeholders in the City and develop and deliver a programme of activity to support the sector going forward. The Project Manager will coordinate and support the Partnership and proactively progress the aims and priority areas it identifies.
