Strathbogie Shire Mayor, Cr Amanda McClaren sits on the Arts and Culture Advisory Group who have developed the draft Arts and Culture Strategy.

“Council recognised the need for a greater focus on supporting and developing arts and culture within our communities, which was highlighted by our community at the beginning of our Council’s term and features in our Council Plan,” Cr McClaren explained.

“We had great conversations with our community during the development of the strategy and what we heard was that people wanted more opportunities to tell their stories and celebrate local identities, more opportunities for entertainment and community events and better access to arts and cultural experiences,” Cr McClaren said.

“What we have created is a strategy that looks to achieve these things by stimulating creativity and connectedness, supporting growth and learning and supporting our community to preserve and celebrate our culture.”
