Motions

(a)  Councillor Kaur to move:

 

Council notes the positive economic and social impact made to cities that have successfully bid for City of Culture; this ranges from an inward investment of £2 billion to over 90% engagement from residents in the city of Hull. Council understands and values the impact that arts, culture and heritage can have on the economic and social strength of a city, and the difference a City of Culture bid can make to people’s lives. Together Southampton will aim to use the development of the bid as part of the journey to help Southampton reach its full potential, while engaging people from all ages, backgrounds, abilities, races and religions.  

 

Council wishes to build on our, and other stakeholders, investment in arts and culture-led regeneration to use culture to shape and deliver sustainable economic, social, environmental, health and wellbeing outcomes for not only our current communities but also future generations of residents, visitors, artists, innovators and businesses in the decades to come. As part of our civic duty, we jointly commit to co-create with our diverse, talented communities and wider stakeholders a partnership bid from Southampton to become UK City of Culture. 

 

Council calls upon all elected members, stakeholders, partners, and members of our diverse communities to support the creation of Southampton’s City of Culture bid for 2025, so we can use this opportunity to work together to generate the creation of a better city for the future.”
