People power is key to bid success

Have your say

more than 100 people have said #Yes! to our campaign to back Leeds’ bid to become the European City of Culture by applying to be on the steering group.

While the deadline to enter the bidding is still two years away, there is already a build-up of excitement and anticipation that is gathering a head of steam.

The successful people for the group must be carefully selected with a criteria of innovative, imaginative thinking at the heart of that process. It is vitally important that this is seen as the people’s bid and that their voice is the dominant one on the group, ensuring we deliver the bid for 2023.
