26 November 2015 Cultural Strategy to Develop Capacity and Cultural Life

​A new Cultural Strategic Plan to be developed by Council will focus on supporting the future needs of the Coffs Harbour community.

 

At its meeting on November 26 2015, Council resolved to allocate funding to commission a new Cultural Strategic Plan 2017-2022 which will outline strategies to reinforce the central role of arts and culture in the liveability of our region.

 

The Plan will guide Council’s programs and funding priorities for the next five years.

 

The Cultural Strategic Plan will look at opportunities to expand the significant contribution that the arts and creative industries make to the economic, social and cultural fabric of our City.

 

Future growth potential for industries will be examined along with the opportunity to promote the Coffs Harbour region as a place for creative expression and recreation.

 

Developing ways to preserve our unique cultural heritage to enable a shared and deeper understanding of the people who live in the region will also form part of the plan.

 

The plan will include a feasibility and cost benefit assessment of a performing arts centre for Coffs Harbour to explore options for public/private partnerships and assessing existing venues for expansion or redevelopment opportunities.

 

“The development of the Cultural Strategic Plan will continue a conversation between Council and the community to identify how Council can support the development of this key sector of our community into the future,” said Sian Nivison, Group Leader Community and Cultural Services.
