Medway’s UK City of Culture 2025 bid has announced an opportunity for everyone in and around the area to get involved in helping to shape the bid.
Together with Creative Medway, the organisation launched Medway’s Great Big Ideas Call Out as part of an event attended by locals and supporters on board a newly revealed Medway 2025 bid boat on the River Medway. The City of Culture branded Jetstream Tours boat will be setting sail up and down the River throughout the summer.
The call out is open to people of all ages to make suggestions, pitch ideas and voice what they would like to see happen in Medway in 2025, and over the life of the area’s new decade-
long cultural strategy, led by Creative Medway.
Digital resources will be made available to all the Medway schools with the ambition of allowing every child and young person in education to submit their ideas as part of the development of the bid.
Whether in the form of creative commissions, public events, community projects or
changes to Medway’s places and spaces, people across the area are invited to share who they would like to see perform in Medway, what opportunities they would like for local people, and how they would like to bring Medway to life.
To submit an idea, fill out a form at a local Medway library or head to the Medway 2025 website: medway2025.co.uk
