Council's new Arts and Culture Strategy presents a vision for the arts, culture and creativity in the shire that seeks to:
support opportunities for participation in arts and cultural activities to help connect our communities
support raising the profile of local artists and the arts community
enable the activation of town centres and rural communities
The strategy aims to promote inclusion, collaboration and participation in arts and cultural activities across the whole shire. It recognises the value of the arts in connecting our communities.
The strategy has been developed over the past 12 months in consultation with key stakeholders and community.
