Our cultural offer sets Medway apart as a
vibrant, dynamic place. It establishes our area as a
destination that is attracting ever-growing interest regionally,
nationally and internationally, with its unique combination of rich
history, state-of-the-art facilities, and flourishing network of
Medway’s cultural offer also delivers a range
of wellbeing benefits, bringing people together, tackling social
isolation and promoting more active lifestyles.
Culture should not simply be viewed as ‘nice
to have’, it brings hard-edged economic benefits too: the creative
and tourism sectors account for around 15% of Medway’s economy and
are two of the fastest growing sectors nationally.
Our cultural offer has a pivotal role to play
in the regeneration and place making of Medway as an attractive
place to live, work, study and visit.
The next iteration of the cultural strategy is intended to
continue that trajectory, establishing Medway as a city in all but
name. With our partners we already provide a wide range of cultural
activities. This strategy reviews our current provision and sets
out our future ambitions.
