This October, we are joining forces with organisations from across the West Midlands to ask you about your cultural experiences over a 24 hour period.
As a region, we are lucky to have a multitude of cultural experiences on offer and we want to know what you think are the most valuable to you and those you experience the most.
The actress Meera Syall MBE has voiced her support for the survey. She commented: “If you care about the arts, please take the 24 Hour Culture Survey. This is a 24 hour dash to map out how much the arts matter to us all.
“The West Midlands is full of great culture, from Wolves to Warwick, bhangra to The Bard himself, and some of Britain’s funniest, most creative and talented people.
“If you plan to read a book, play an instrument, take a dance class, watch a film, laugh at something on Youtube or take your kids to the theatre over the course of the day, just tell the survey. It’ll help us all shout about the value of the arts.”
We hope that, once collated, the results will help arts and heritage organisations in the West Midlands plan for the future.
The survey goes live at www.24hourculture.co.uk from 12 noon on 24 October – make sure to mark it in your diary and ehad over to the website for more information.
