Your City, Your Say

New Cultural Strategy for Belfast 2020 - 2030

Belfast City Council (BCC) in the process of developing options for a new approach to long-term cultural development in the city. BCC value your voice, and seek contribution from all sectors (art, tourism, business, heritage, sport, hospitality, creative industries and more) to collectively develop an authentic narrative for our city. Throughout this process BCC hope to engage with you in a number of ways and we hope that you will be able to contribute in whatever way suits you best.

To begin this process BCC are running a series of conversations to help form our new cultural strategy for this city and want you to join them.

There are a range of times and locations available for you to choose from, BCC are only asking for an hour of your time and they will be providing food and refreshments at each session to help the conversation flow. Please also share this around your contacts, we want to involve as many creative voices a possible.

There are only 10 places in each session, to book your place just click on the venue link below that best suits you.

Please email with your dietary and access requirements 1 week prior to your session.

Please arrive at the venue 10 minutes before the start time of your session.

Thanks very much for taking the time to be part of this, we very much look forward to seeing you soon.

Join us for the Culture Forum

The Culture Forum is an annual gathering for the cultural and creative sectors, alongside key stakeholders and partners in the city. This year we will be taking the opportunity to present and explore the themes that have been gathered during the Your City, Your Say process and have fed into the draft ‘Cultural Statement’ for the city. Everyone is welcome to attend this forum (whether you participated in Your City, Your Say or not) as we want a wide range of voices represented at this event.

The Culture Forum will take place on Monday 28 January. For more information and how to register your place please see the Belfast City Council website -
