Council this week resolved to seek community feedback on a draft Arts and Creativity Strategy – a shared reference and long term vision for the direction of the arts in the region.

Since May this year, Council has conducted extensive research and consultation with more than 800 members of the community.

Northern Beaches Mayor Michael Regan said community engagement identified strong interest in a grass roots level of involvement in the arts.

“We knew our residents actively participate in the arts, but were surprised by the results from a recent random phone survey by an independent research company where a staggering 96% of participants said they were supportive of Council’s role in the arts.

“There is also evidence which firmly establishes the link between the arts and community wellbeing which is a direct result of art facilities, programs and initiatives, as well as indirectly through the good design of our urban environments and creation of welcoming places.

“We know art enriches our community and it will be great to see Northern Beaches first Arts and Creativity Strategy implemented. We want the best for our community and the local economy, so I encourage you to provide feedback on this Strategy,” said Mayor Regan.

The draft Strategy is an invitation to collaborate across three key outcome areas – Better Places and Spaces, Diverse Programs and Activations, and Active Participation and Engagement.

Have your say on the draft Strategy on Council’s Your Say website from 3 December.

Visit Northern Beaches Council website to find out more about the project and engagement activities that will take place early next year (2019). Submissions close on 17 February 2019.
