Beam has been commissioned to develop a Cultural Framework for the Selby District on behalf of Selby District Council and we’re looking to get the views, thoughts and ideas of as many people, organisations and companies as possible across the district and beyond.

Please note the consultation period has now closed.

Why is a cultural framework relevant?

The Cultural Framework will help to identify the cultural activity already happening in the Selby District area, what the people of the District want to see in the future and how culture can be used to make the District an even better place to live, work and visit.

Whether you’re an artist, organise events, manage a venue or enjoy cultural activities, this is your chance to help shape the framework and what happens in Selby District in the future.

What do we mean by culture?

The term ‘culture’ means different things to different people, but culture is relevant to everyone as we all experience it in our own way.

This could include museums, libraries, theatres, cinemas, galleries, carnivals, choirs, storytelling, podcasts, filmmaking, animation, writing, poetry, festivals, performances, concerts, sports, food, leisure, heritage or crafts to name a few. 

It could be about going to events, enjoying walks in the countryside, learning new skills, finding out more about the history of the area, spending time with others and having fun. 

Beam, has been commissioned by Selby District Council to develop the Framework. We have been working for a number of months researching the District and understanding what is special and important about the area.

We’d now like to hear everyone’s views. Please say as much or as little as you like in response, what is important is finding out how you feel about culture in the Selby District.
