Arts and Culture Strategy

We welcome your feedback!

Strathbogie Shire Council has released its draft Arts and Culture Strategy which aims to increase opportunities for creative stimulation and connectedness, increase arts and cultural experiences, preserve heritage and foster diverse cultural sustainability within our shire.

The need to further nurture and develop arts and culture was highlighted by our community at the beginning of Council’s term, which led to the creation of the Tourism, Arts and Culture Advisory Group and the development of an Arts and Culture Strategy.

Extensive consultation has taken place over a significant period of time both within our community and with the broader creative collectives to develop a strategy that is reflective of our current and future needs, that also addresses the desired Cultural, Social, Environmental, Economic and Governance outcomes.

Council encourages our community to take a look at the strategy and associated 12 month action plan and provide feedback to be considered in the final review of the strategy before it goes to Council for consideration.Draft Arts & Culture Statergy
