Create Georges River – Cultural Strategy

The Create Georges River Cultural Strategy will provide a strategic focus for Council to deliver on its commitment to developing and supporting arts and culture in the area.

On 24 June 2019, Council resolved to publicly exhibit the draft Create Georges River Cultural Strategy for community feedback.

The Create Georges River Cultural Strategy will provide a strategic focus for Council to deliver on its commitment to developing and supporting arts and culture in the area. The draft Strategy articulates ideas and aspirations, developed in close consultation with the Georges River community, key stakeholders and cultural professionals, that will provide Council with a clear vision and actions to be delivered over the next ten years.

Community consultation revealed three key needs related to the growth and development of culture in the Georges River area - communication, sustainability and access. From these key needs, the draft Strategy puts forward four strategic directions:

  • CONNECT Georges River speaks to the need to make connections between communities and cultural organisations throughout and beyond the Georges River local government area (LGA) to develop a strong cultural identity and connected cultural ecology;
  • CREATE Georges River aims to reimagine the LGA as a place of cultural production, innovation and experimentation. This direction articulates the conditions needed to foster the creation of art and culture; it acknowledges the paucity of fit for purpose creative spaces in the LGA; and it describes how Council can directly and indirectly meet the community’s growing needs;
  • EXPRESS Georges River is concerned with the expression of the cultural life of the Georges River LGA. How can the existing forms of cultural activity be more successfully demonstrated both within the LGA and further afield, and how can the LGA better attract high calibre artists and performers;
  • SUSTAIN Georges River promotes the sustainability of cultural life in the Georges River LGA.

Council would like to hear you thoughts on the draft Create Georges River Cultural Strategy.

Where to view the draft Create Georges River Cultural Strategy.

Cultural Mapping

As part of preparing the draft Create Georges River Cultural Strategy, we have undertaken a cultural mapping process. A snapshot of this can be found on pages 55 – 60 in the draft Strategy or document library on this page.

Cultural mapping is an evolving process. This map is intended as an initial point of reference at a particular point in time

Drop a pin on the map to let us know of a cultural place or activity that you believe should be included in the Cultural Mapping process
