Peterborough Cultural Alliance (PCA) To Collaborate with UCP to Drive Local Cultural Strategy

Sughra Ahmed, the new Managing Director of Peterborough Cultural Alliance (PCA), visited University Centre Peterborough (UCP) to discuss how to create more opportunities across the arts for FE and HE students.

UCP strives to be part of projects and initiatives that recognise the importance of the arts and creativity in Peterborough. The institution aims to do this in a number of ways, including:

  • Offering space at University Centre Peterborough for events
  • Actively promoting careers in the creative sector
  • Offering inclusive provision that supports learners from diverse backgrounds
  • Promoting under-represented groups by giving them a voice in the arts

The University Centre is already adopting a strategy to create more opportunities across the arts for their students, such as the Gateway Film Festival 2024 which is already booked to be hosted on the UCP campus.

Sughra spoke fondly of her visit, saying; “It was a real pleasure to get to know University Centre Peterborough and its staff. Our city is rich with 21st century resources, including educational facilities such as UCP.

"I’m proud to know the people who are bringing powerful opportunities to the people of our city. I wish you all the very best of luck for the upcoming academic year and look forward to building culture across our rural region and city!”
