A world-class cultural city

The City Council and its partners believe that culture - whether it takes the form of the architecture that surrounds us, the museums that reflect our past and present, or the literature and performing and visual arts through which we celebrate our experiences - plays a profound role in shaping people's experiences and attitudes.

We believe that access to high quality cultural experiences is the right of all our citizens. Our ambition - developed with our partners, including business, community organisations, the health and education sectors, and the County Council - is to make Oxford a world-class city for everyone.

Our shared vision for culture:

To work in partnership with Oxford's key stakeholders and cultural partners to develop and promote cultural activities and events that enhance and leave a legacy in the lives of individuals and communities, offer affordable, excellent experiences, encourage attainment amongst young people and promote cultural ambition.

Our three key priorities for culture: 

  • Lead a partnership-based approach to sustaining, developing and improving the cultural life of the city.
  • Improve opportunities for young people to access and actively participate in high quality cultural activities.
  • Improve opportunities for the diverse range of communities in the city to actively participate in high quality cultural activities that reflect their own identities and can be shared with the whole community.
