Cultural Destinations

The Wakefield Cultural Consortium is looking for an inspirational and passionate advocate who is able to promote the value and importance of Wakefield’s culture and visitor economy to support Wakefield’s aspirations to be a leading cultural destination in the north of England.

Wakefield’s outstanding cultural and visitor offer has the potential to become an important national and international cultural destination for the north of England. The Wakefield Cultural Consortium is a collective of Wakefield-based cultural organisations, visitor attractions and local businesses which are committed to working together and with Wakefield Council to promote the Wakefield District as a leading cultural destination nationally and internationally. Supported by a £223,000 grant from Arts Council England’s Cultural Destinations initiative, the Consortium will deliver a three-year programme starting in 2017 to enhance the profile of Wakefield and encourage visitors to the district, helping to grow the local economy and increase job opportunities.

As part of this programme we are now seeking to appoint a Visitor Champion for Wakefield.
