In 2014 Calderdale was one of ten destinations across the country to secure funding from Arts Council England to develop the area as a cultural destination. This two and a half year project successfully brought together a cluster of cultural, heritage and tourist destinations to innovate and drive the visitor economy.
Using research undertaken, and the relationships built, partners have established a new company to serve cultural organisations, and support growth for the visitor economy. Following a successful application to Arts Council England, development funding has been secured for Cultural Destinations II. The newly formed company, Halifax Culture Hub will provide the vehicle to enhance cultural tourism developing the vision to support high quality cultural activity in the area, facilitating wider reach and deeper engagement with audiences.
This is an exciting opportunity for a highly experienced and motivated individual to work with partners of Halifax Culture Hub and the Destination Management Organisation to create a plan to build capacity to realise potential of the cultural tourism offer in Halifax and Calderdale.
