Arts and Culture in Hume

Hume City Council is developing a new Arts and Culture Strategy. The Strategy will build on Hume’s unique cultural assets and identify opportunities for Council to strengthen the arts and culture sector into the future.

Between June and August 2019 Hume City Council sought community feedback on Arts and Culture in Hume to inform the development of a new Arts and Culture Strategy. A survey of Creative Industries in Hume, an Arts and Culture survey and a series of community workshops were held to help us understand the current state of arts and culture in Hume and priorities for the future.

Throughout January and February 2020 input was sought from the community, via an online survey, to ensure the strategy reflects community expectations. This feedback is now being considered and will help further inform the strategy which will be available in draft form mid-2020.

 If you would like to know more about how arts and culture in Hume this Discussion Paper will help provide the context for the need for a Strategy.


In line with the visions and aspirations outlined in Hume Horizons 2040 and the Council Plan 2017-2021, the Arts and Culture Strategy will continue to:

• Foster creativity by supporting both established and emerging local artists
• Build capacity and participation in cultural activities for Hume’s diverse community
• Provide infrastructure that is appropriate for creative use
• Harness the opportunities presented in a rapidly changing cultural, social, economic and environmental landscape.
