Shellharbour City Council is currently developing a new Arts and Cultural Strategy, a need which was identified in the Community Strategic Plan.
The strategy will guide Council’s approach to art and cultural investment and activity over the next 3 – 5 years. It will build on existing cultural assets and resources, while providing new opportunities for cultural development, creative expression, local identity and place-making initiatives.
Ultimately the strategy will outline and suggest coordinated ambitions for the future that will inform Council’s planning, programming and funding priorities, ensuring that arts and culture is integrated into almost everything Council does. Council’s objective is to encourage and support a creative community participating in arts and cultural activities.
