Becoming a Member

We are developing an approach to membership to ensure Culture Central is open to as wide a group of organisations as possible; many other organisations are involved in our development groups.

We're continually growing our membership base and developing our governance model. Culture Central is committed to working with all cultural (arts and heritage) organisations in the Birmingham region and welcomes enquiries and ideas about how to get involved.
