Why do we need a Cultural Strategy?

The cultural strategy will identify what will add cultural value to Council’s SMART, GREEN, LIVEABLE and CREATIVE objectives; and Council’s role in delivering and maximising cultural outcomes for the City.

How do we define culture?

We are using a broad definition of culture that includes diverse ways of expressing who we are. Discussions of culture include Aboriginal cultural expression; diverse multicultural expression through food and celebrations of language, history and heritage; the arts and maker traditions; music and film; festivals and events; architecture and design; creative industries; and arts education and training.

Who are Culture Makers?

Culture makers are people who make culture happen. They are the creative people who make, for example, art, shoot films, write stories, generate music, perform, design buildings and public spaces, make games, fashion clothes, jewellery and objects.

Culture makers are also the people who create opportunities for diverse stories to be seen, heard and shared. They support creativity and cultural activity by providing funding and training, running cultural institutions, curating exhibitions, collecting art and objects, and presenting shows and events. 

What do we mean when we say ‘cultural sector’?

The cultural sector is made up of all the individuals, groups and organisations who contribute to creative and cultural activity in the City. Council is one of these organisations.

What is a creative incubator?

A creative incubator is an organisation that provides, professional development and opportunities to develop a career making, for example, art, shooting films, writing stories, generating music, performing, designing buildings and public spaces, making games, fashion clothes, jewellery and objects.

What is an emerging creative?

An emerging creative is someone who is at the beginning of their career making, for example, art, shooting films, writing stories, generating music, performing, designing buildings and public spaces, making games, fashion clothes, jewellery and objects.
