Ignite Social: Cities of culture, ambition and hope

8 December 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm


How can a city create the conditions for ambition and growth — enabling people to think and plan with imagination.

How can Chelmsford join a movement of international cities — drawing inspiration and learning from places around the world — who are using the arts and culture to galvanise, foster innovation and developing a sense of opportunity and hope.

What to expect? Bar, chilled music, social chatter, some short brain food talks and the chance to feed into, and help shape, the new Cultural Strategy.

This month we hear from two speakers with first-hand experience of working with cities and their communities to use culture as a catalyst for social and economic change.
