Creative Culture Plan 2020 - 2025
The Shire of Augusta Margaret River’s (Shire) Creative Culture Plan sets the vision, priority areas and strategies of the local creative and cultural community for the next five years.
The Shire recognises that it has a role to play in encouraging and facilitating arts and cultural activity; providing leadership and direction in cultural development and supporting cultural organisations so that they can continue their services.
The Creative Culture Plan provides a five year cultural planning framework to complement the Shire’s Community Strategic Plan, and will be used to:
The Creative Culture Plan was compiled in collaboration with a dedicated Arts and Culture Committee. The process was also informed by wider community and stakeholder engagement over this time. The plan addresses the challenges our community faces and sets out the actions required to work towards achieving a shared vision.
As required in the Local Government (Administration) Regulations 1996, the Creative Culture Plan sits within an integrated framework for corporate planning and reporting. This plan is informed by the Strategic Community Plan 2036, the Corporate and Operational Plan and Budget. It also relates to other Shire of Augusta Margaret River plans including the Sustainable Events Strategy, Public Art Policy and Plan, Strengthening Youth Plan, Sustainable Economy Policy and the Access and Inclusion Plan as well as the Local Planning Scheme in relation to arts and cultural development within local development.
