About

About: 

The Golden Plains Arts, Culture and Heritage Strategy 2022-2026 will build on Council’s current commitment to developing, strengthening and celebrating local arts, culture and heritage in our communities. The new strategy will respond directly to the relevant strategic objectives of the Council Plan, in line with the Golden Plains Community Vision 2040.

An arts and culture plan or strategy is developed every four years for Golden Plains Shire and for the first time, the Strategy for 2022-2026 will also incorporate heritage, in acknowledgement of its key role in Council’s Arts & Culture portfolio of projects and programs.
