Leeds In Conversation

Episode Twelve - The Importance of Culture to a City and its People

November 29, 2020

On this episode James Brining (Artistic Director and CEO of Leeds Playhouse and an Inclusive Growth Strategy Ambassador) is joined by Pamela Johnson (Principal Officer, Culture and Sport, Leeds City Council) and Kully Thiarai (Creative Director, Leeds 2023) to discuss the impact the coronavirus pandemic has had on culture in Leeds.

They discuss the affect culture and creativity have in people’s experience of a city and how important it is in making Leeds the great place it is – to live, to work and to visit. They talk about the Leeds Cultural Strategy and the conversations taking place with communities across the city around the different concepts of ‘culture’; how it links to ‘placemaking’ and the plans for Leeds 2023.
