Identified by Council in its 2021- 2026 Corporate Plan as a key action, Somerset Regional Council is developing a five year Arts and Culture Strategy to outline future goals, plans and themes for enhancing artistic, cultural and heritage-related opportunities and experiences in the Somerset region.
Help Shape the Strategy
In order to develop the Strategy, Council would like to hear from the community regarding a range of broad topics such as the variety of arts and cultural activities on offer, arts practice in the region, festivals, stories; built heritage in the region; and history from both an Indigenous and settlement perspective
Whether you're an amateur painter, musician, hobbyist, arts student, supporter or just an interested member of the public — we'd like your feedback and ideas.
To assist with the preparation of this Strategy, Council would like to understand the community's expectations, priorities and aspirations relating to arts, culture and heritage in the Somerset region. There are several ways you can share your thoughts.
