Live in Nottingham? Love Culture? Support Nottingham 2023 European City of Culture Bid

Dance4 and iC4C are delighted to be supporting Nottingham’s once in a lifetime bid to become European Capital of Culture 2023, which was announced earlier today.

Competing against Belfast, Dundee, Leeds, and Milton Keynes, Nottingham’s European Capital of Culture 2023 bid has already received strong support from many key institutions and cultural organisations across the city.

A dedicated website and social media channels for the bid were unveiled earlier today. Public support for the bid is essential if we are to be successful – please show your support by becoming a Nottingham 2023 ‘Cultural Lion’. 

Dance4’s Artistic Director based at iC4C, Paul Russ, is chairman of Nottingham's Cultural Strategy Partnership and chair of the Nottingham 2023 board and commented:

“As part of the bid, we want to give everyone in Nottingham the opportunity to take part in a project, production or experience and nurture the next generation of creative producers and cultural leaders…. We are a proud and inclusive city and urge people of all backgrounds to ‘join our pride’ and help us get to the next stage of the bid by becoming ‘Cultural Lions’'.
