Arts & Culture Strategy
The Northern Grampians Shire Council has an important role in creating an environment where the arts and culture are nurtured, valued and supported across the entire community. Arts and cultural initiatives can play a vital role in supporting community cohesion and generating community pride, as well as fostering economic development and tourist visitation. For those actively involved as participants, or engaged as audiences, the arts can offer an enriching experience that enhances individual quality of life and contributes to building a strong sense of community belonging and well-being.
The Northern Grampians Shire is fortunate to have a growing arts sector that is diverse and vibrant. High quality events and programs organised by local artists and community groups have increased in recent years, providing Northern Grampians with a rich and varied program of cultural events, while also establishing a dialogue with the wider arts and cultural sector.
It is intended that the Northern Grampians Shire Council Arts and Cultural Strategy be action orientated to provide a tangible framework to support the development of the arts and culture in the Shire through a Council-Community partnership. It is fundamentally a guide for the delivery of Council services and Council support and to ensure that there is a whole-of-council response to community cultural development in the Northern Grampians community.
