METROLAND CULTURES IS THE CHARITY THAT PRESENTED BRENT 2020, LONDON BOROUGH OF CULTURE.
Brent 2020 was a collective endeavour – not just presented for the people of Brent but created with their support. To help deliver it, we launched Metroland Cultures, a new charity platforming voices of people across Brent through arts and culture.
Metroland Cultures mission is to support culture, creativity and youth development in Brent now and in the future.
Everything Metroland Cultures does begins with the people of Brent. This includes the Metroland Cultures Fund, which we set up in April 2020 to provide financial support to 25 Brent artists and creatives during lockdown.
From 2021, our charity will support new artistic commissions in Brent every year: at least one of which will be led by young people. And not only will we continue to deliver our support programmes for young people, artists, community advisors and teachers – we’ll extend them beyond Brent’s borders and further into Metroland.
Metroland Cultures is a new charity for a new generation in the arts and in Brent. Stay tuned – there’s much more to come.
