Lancashire 2025 has launched its Bid Programme Call seeking new ideas for physical locations in Lancashire that include a digital element. The call is open to anyone from anywhere in Lancashire, the UK, or the rest of the world. We want proposals for high-profile events, creative projects, and cultural experiences that reimagine the way we live based on our four topics of cultural regeneration; living, connection, nature, and digital.
Lancashire 2025 wants to build a groundbreaking, high-quality cultural programme to stage the UK City of Culture, in the Virtual city of Lancashire – a cultural city of ‘creative’ citizens at a county scale, joining the geographical area and the digital spaces – and we want to hear from anyone who has an idea for the bid.
Successful applicants will be included as part of the indicative programme in the Lancashire 2025 Bid for UK City of Culture and, if Lancashire is chosen to be the UK City of Culture for 2025, will:
- be awarded up to £25,000 development money from Lancashire 2025 to research and develop your proposal for potential
commissioning – thanks to sponsors investing in Lancashire 2025’s programme.
Commissioned projects for Lancashire 2025 will:
- Receive funding and development support from Lancashire 2025 to leverage resources, partners and collaboration to bring their vision to life in production/presentation.
- Be presented in the programme for Lancashire 2025 and made available for digital distribution to audiences across the world in 2025.
- Be documented and archived in a single digital collection of commissioned works for legacy exhibition beyond 2025.
The deadline for applications is Tuesday 31 August 2021.
