The Plan aligns with the Shires Vision and Community Strategic Plan 2036 and details how the Shire will deliver art and culture programs over the next five years.

The vision of the Creative Culture Plan 2020 - 2025 is for the Shire to be known for our vibrant, innovative, diverse and provocative art and culture.
