Hertfordshire Year of Culture 2020

HYOC will showcase Hertfordshires as a county of creative and cultural opportunity, with 5 broad objectives:

  • Celebrate, share and explore Hertfordshire's arts, culture and heritage
  • Enable access and participation in arts, culture and heritage for new audiences
  • Increase wellbeing and a sense of belonging through arts, culture and heritage
  • Showcase pathways to education, employment and enterprise in creative and cultural industries
  • Create new partnerships and new work through skill sharing and new ways of working.

This will be done through:

  • A collaborative, high profile promotional campaign for existing cultural activity across Hertfordshire
  • Key dates to draw together delivery partners countrywide
  • "Special Experiences" added to both current opportunities and new activities
  • New partnerships and skill sharing between organisations and practitioners, creating new activity locally
  • 12 themed months, with core activity co-ordinated by a lead agency (for details see the themes towards the end of this bulletin and also on the calendar on our website https://www.haptc.org.uk/events.html)

Anyone can get involved! The organisers would welcome support and help from Hertfordshire Parish, Town and Community Councils to reach residents, to promote and encourage participation, or to organise events and activities yourselves; why not ask your County Councillor to consider Locality Budget funding to put on a HYOC project?
