Arts and Culture

In July 2020, Council resolved to adopt a new Strategic Community Plan, which defines the Town’s vision, aspirations and priorities for the next 10 years. It is the key guiding document that informs all other plans, strategies and policies and the Town’s actions and decisions.

One of the seven priority areas is "Building community identity by celebrating culture and heritage", with one of the resultant strategic directions being to engage the community in arts and culture.
