Bolsover district is in the process of reinventing itself following the decline in traditional industries and the arts are well placed to play a role in its regeneration. The arts can deliver effective partnerships which combat health inequalities in specific wards, youth exclusion, environmental unattractiveness and a lack of learning opportunities.
There are opportunities, for example, to improve wellbeing through dance development in collaboration with regional dance agencies, or to build on alliances with Primary Care Trusts in the district.
The priorities for arts development in Bolsover district are as follows:
- We will become a respected partner in strategic arts development, brokering agreements, collaborations and partnerships with a wide range of other bodies.
- We will celebrate its achievements and its strengths and raise the profile and reputation of the arts in the district.
- We will focus its resources on initiatives which are in collaboration with, or led by local communities, and seek to develop these initiatives across the District.
- We will prioritise the development of innovative community-led activity in local areas, and support efforts to sustain them.
If these priorities are achieved, the district will be well placed to benefit from new regional opportunities, more effective communication with the local voluntary sector, and developing opportunities for new and emerging creative businesses.
