Arts Strategy endorsed by Council

June 21, 2014

The City of Melbourne’s Art Strategy 2014-17 was endorsed by Melbourne City Council on 10 June 2014.

Through polls, online forums and public meetings, more than a thousand people shared their vision of what Melbourne’s arts scene should look like by answering questions focused on key elements of a creative city and the role of local government in the arts.

The six major themes that resulted from these conversations - connection, activation, spaces, funding, recognition, and heritage – formed the backbone of the strategy, which will now help support the realisation of our vision for a bold, inspirational, sustainable and creative city.

The final version of the strategy will be released shortly and be available as a download through this site and

We would like to thank the members of the community who helped shape the arts strategy.
