Lincolnshire County Council has set out plans for the future of its heritage and culture service in Lincolnshire – making it much more accessible for residents to explore and enjoy.
Cllr Nick Worth, executive member for Culture and Heritage at Lincolnshire County Council, explains:
“Times are changing and we need to think creatively to make sure we deliver the best cultural experiences for our residents.
“To do this, we’ve put together a long term vision:
· A stronger voice at a national level – accessing funding and investment opportunities, influencing decisions and working with the best cultural organisations worldwide
· Better access across the county by creating new ‘super sites’, which will bring together our museums, art collections, archives and aviation heritage showcasing more of our history
· Thinking differently about the way we, as Greater Lincolnshire, tell the ‘Lincolnshire’ story
· Securing the funding we need and deserve to deliver a world class service
· Continuing to bring blockbuster exhibitions and events to the county, like LEGO at Lincoln Castle, the Natural History Museum’s Dinosaurs and Gaia’s Museum of the Moon to the Collection Museum – enabling residents to access to some of the most amazing experiences to make new and long-lasting memories.
“To make this happen, we need to work differently together – with current and new partners across Greater Lincolnshire and this vision sets out how – with one voice – we can make sure our rich past is fit for the future.”
