Community invited to contribute to new Arts & Cultural Strategic Plan

Armidale Regional Council is inviting everyone in the community to share their views on art, heritage and culture to help develop the region's new Arts & Cultural Strategic Plan.

The Armidale region enjoys a rich and diverse arts and cultural life said Council Administrator Dr Ian Tiley.

“This vibrant cultural life engages us as individuals and bring us together as a community,” he said.

“It is also part of the region's appeal and is essential to attracting and retaining the skilled, innovative and creative people who will sustain economic growth through the challenges of the future.”

The Arts & Cultural Strategic Plan will recognise, develop and promote the region’s diverse cultural life as well as identify opportunities to strengthen and grow our creative economy. It will value artistic expression and protect and promote its heritage.

“Community input is essential to the process of developing strategic plans,” said Dr Tiley.

“This engagement ensures that Council is better able to reflect the community’s thoughts and prioritise needs and aspirations.”

Council will be holding a number of focus group sessions with key arts and cultural organisations and groups as well as forum sessions for residents and neighbours.

All community members are invited to complete the survey and share suggestions towards the development of the Arts & Cultural Strategic Plan before Friday 24 March by going to yoursay.armidale.nsw.gov.au
