Manchester places culture at the heart of its ambitions, from creating a cohesive and inclusive society to developing creative businesses. The significant move of the BBC to Salford’s Media City and the proposed establishment of a Royal Opera House in Manchester are just two of the high profile plans for culture in the city region.
On 20th March at 3:00 PM, the Greater Manchester Brussels Office introduces the city's cultural strategy and projects that help to form synergy between arts and entrepreneurship to the Brussels audience.
