Lincoln Big    Lincoln Cultural and Arts Partnership

Lincoln Cultural and Arts Partnership

The Lincoln Cultural and Arts Partnership brings together Lincoln's cultural and visitor economy sectors, strengthening connections and driving growth in the city.

Culture Connects Programme

The Culture Connects programme presents a range of opportunities for you to get involved with and targets the specific needs of your organisation or practice.  Seminars and masterclasses led by sector specialists will offer fresh insights, advice and approaches to support development and sustainability.

We will also be running a series of ‘Culture Cafes’: events designed to stimulate discussions around particular issues whilst building valuable connections.   

Check out the programme below and follow the links to book places.  Some of the events have limited capacity so we’ll be sure to share links to presentations and other content shortly afterwards for anyone who is unable to attend. 

We look forward to seeing you soon!

Please note:  This programme is intended to support organisations and individuals whose work focuses on or is produced in the city of Lincoln and the closely surrounding area.
