Details about the Workshops

Blaze Arts is running some crucial youth consultation this summer to gather opinions and ideas to shape the Lancashire 2025 UK City of Culture bid.

Blaze are looking for 16-25 year olds who want to be involved in making the region a better, more creative and inspiring place to live. Young people can share their opinions and ideas in online focus sessions or take part via an online survey where their voices will feed into the Lancashire 2025 vision for a future virtual city.

The next focus sessions will take place on Tuesday 22nd September at 6pm and Saturday 26th September at 2pm. For more information and to sign up to the workshops click here.

It is vital that we hear from as many 16-25 year olds across Lancashire as possible to ensure everyone is represented in the vision.

Complete the survey here! One survey respondent will be selected at random to win a £15 e-voucher!
