Arts and culture

Working with the community

Stakeholders, staff and the local community have been engaged throughout the project’s development, providing wide-ranging input that has informed the Arts and Culture Strategy. Dominant themes were the natural environment and sustainability; Aboriginal history and culture; community inclusion and belonging; and nontraditional art forms such as interactive art, performance and sound artworks. 

Participation by the whole community in both the development of the Strategy and the creation of the artworks is a key goal. The Strategy aims to use arts and culture programs to create a strong sense of place, community connection and ongoing enlivening of the space.
