Background and further information:
Starting in 2016, six core areas were identified in a wide-ranging, dynamic process, with the aim of producing medium-term guidelines for the period up to 2030. The Culture Committee agreed the key points of focus (document no. B-154/2018) for the Culture Strategy on 31 May 2018. Public consultation on document B-154/2018 was undertaken at the Culture Strategy Debate Day event on 3 May 2018 and suggestions and ideas were taken into account as the strategy was developed. On the basis of this, Culture Strategy stakeholders worked to evaluate proposed measures in the core areas and develop them in more detail by August 2018 for inclusion in the full document, City of Chemnitz Culture Strategy for the Years 2018 to 2030.
Around 150 individuals were involved in developing the Culture Strategy. These were largely volunteers, working in subject groups, workshops and future labs. The process as a whole was coordinated by a steering group, led by cultural sector representatives. The results were consolidated by the editorial team, which then put the texts together.
