Southend-on-Sea Borough Council

Public Art Strategy

Southend-on-Sea Borough Council’s Cultural Strategy, ‘Making Culture Count’, states that the Borough’s vision is ‘to be recognized as the cultural capital of the East of England by 2010’.

This document makes the case for a Public Art Strategy which is integral to the Borough’s social and

economic development, and challenges negative perceptions of Southend.

The Public Art Strategy responds to the opportunities offered through current funding programmes, the Thames Gateway project and the commitment of the Arts Council to regeneration.

The strategy has been informed by a wide range of comparators, extensive consultation and focus group discussions.

Major issues identified in the consultation process included the importance of context, the value of wide-ranging consultation, and the need for a robust strategy championed by the Council.
