More about Camden’s bid
Camden has some of the most iconic cultural venues in London, a long history of innovation, and our connection to the rest of Europe via Eurostar means that people come from all over to visit our borough. So, why are we bidding to be the London Borough of Culture?
Culture in Camden is so much more than simply attending the latest gallery or exhibition – it’s woven into the fabric of our borough, it is implicit in Camden’s people, visible on its streets and in its heritage. Culture means so many different things to different people yet it has the ability to bring communities together. Camden has a reputation for seeking innovative solutions for problems, and we truly believe culture can transform lives. Through our bid we want to support our existing cultural venues and bring culture out onto the streets so everyone in Camden can benefit. We want to create a year of culture that’s not only known for producing a fantastic programme of events for people to enjoy but that brings wider benefits for Camden residents and beyond.
