A range of arts, culture, heritage and creative organisations play an important role in creating a vibrant, diverse and interesting community for residents and visitors alike.
As well as enriching the experiences of daily life, these organisations plays an important role in our economic development through employment, entertainment and tourism.
We have developed a co-ordinated approach to combine resources rather than compete for them so that the creative sector is able to plan for the future.
The result of this co-ordinated approach is our Arts, Culture and Heritage Policy which was adopted by Council in April 2009. To read a summary and the full version of the policy, follow the link below.
