About

About: 

The Arts, Culture and Heritage Strategy 2022-2026 (Strategy) describes cultural aspirations for Golden Plains and details four clear strategic directions, each with a list of key actions. The objectives guiding the Strategy ensure that arts, culture and heritage initiatives will directly and measurably contribute to connected and resilient communities in Golden Plains over the next four years, with strong links to positive health and wellbeing and economic development outcomes.

Responding directly to the relevant strategic objectives of the Council Plan 2021-2025, in line with the Golden Plains Community Vision 2040, the Draft Strategy promotes understanding and celebration of the Shire’s Indigenous heritage, rich histories and creative future.

The Strategy was developed from extensive community consultation earlier in 2021. Following an Expression of Interest process, a dedicated Community Reference Group was formed to guide the development of the Strategy. Council also held six community workshops with a total of 40 participants and 35 residents shared their ideas via a paper and online survey in May and June.
