Cultural Strategy for Boscombe and Pokesdown

Celebrating and shaping the unique identity of Boscombe and Pokesdown

Work has begun on a Cultural Strategy for the area, but is currently paused. 

We will keep you updated as soon as we have more information to share. 

Background 

The Boscombe and Pokesdown community are looking to discover and celebrate the stories and the activities of local people. The residents and workers of all ages and backgrounds. 

Why are we developing a Cultural Strategy? 

  • To celebrate the heritage and culture in Boscombe and Pokesdown 
  • To make people (even more) proud of the area 
  • To protect and develop the area's heritage and distinct identity 
  • To attract funding 

Why is this important? 

It’s important for the local community to share what’s important to them and why. This is so potential future funders of projects in the area are confident about what to invest in. The strength of the identity here, and that the community will support them.
