Melbourne’s resident population and daily visitation is growing rapidly. Arts and creativity are essential to Melbourne’s identity.

A new Arts Strategy for 2014-17 is being developed. In October and November, we held public and artist forums, pop-up events and sought feedback online about what people love about the arts in Melbourne and how we should encourage arts and creativity.

The draft Melbourne Arts Strategy (PDF, 0.9MB) was open for your final input from 12 March to 9 April 2014. You were able to participate by completing an online survey. Project updates are provided below.
