Helping us shape Brent’s year as London Borough of Culture.

A diverse group of local residents, our 2020 Community Advisors guided and shaped Brent’s year as London Borough of Culture. As we put Brent on London’s centre stage, the Community Advisors helped us to celebrate life in Brent and ensure that we left a lasting legacy for the borough.

Well-connected in their communities and passionate about the potential for culture and creativity to bring positive change, our Community Advisors attended regular project board meetings, sharing their expertise and helping steer our key programme strands. They also advocated for Brent 2020 and spread the word among their networks and communities.
