Cultural Leadership Board

Placing culture at the heart of sustainable growth in the region

Advisory Group (CLB)

The WMCA, Cultural Leadership Board (CLB) has been established as an advisory board to maximise the contribution of culture to delivering clean and inclusive growth in the region and to enhance quality of life of its citizens. It will help support a sustainable, entrepreneurial, and diverse cultural sector which is accessible to all residents across the region. The current board members are representative from the different parts of the Cultural Sector across the WMCA geographical area.

The CLB had its first board meeting in February 2020 and has since developed a vision and mission statement to outline its purpose:

Vision statement: ‘The WMCA Cultural Leadership Board (CLB) places culture at the heart of sustainable growth in the region, enhancing quality of life for its diverse communities’.

Mission statement: ‘The Advisory Board will look for strategic opportunities to test the transformative role of culture across WMCA’s policy areas, including transport and housing, skills, digital, the environment, wellbeing, and inclusive communities. It is committed to building an innovative and entrepreneurial cultural sector, with leadership that reflects the diversity of our region, and supporting a world-class cultural offer that is accessible to all’.
