Arts and Culture in Hume

This consultation is now closed. 


Hume City Council is developing a new Arts and Culture Strategy. Council has sought input from the community and the arts and culture sector to guide the creation of this 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.

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.

To help shape the development of the Strategy, this Discussion Paper was prepared to start the conversation. This helped gain initial feedback and identify what’s important for arts and culture in Hume City, both now and into the future.

Consultation closed on Monday 2 September, 2019. A draft Arts and Culture Strategy will be presented for community comment in early 2020.
