Trafford’s Cultural Strategy has been developed over the past year, drawing on extensive research as well as consultation and engagement with a wide range of stakeholders.

The vision of the Cultural Strategy is – “We will make Trafford a place powered by cultural and creative expression that comes from everyone, and which will enrich lives and life chances.” This is underpinned by 3 main strategic aims focussing on Leadership, Talent and Communities.

Further engagement has led to the co-produced action plan to activate the strategy. The action plan is starting point, so will grow and be refined once implementation begins.
