Help de­velop art plan

Sunshine Coast Daily - Caloundra Weekly - - LIFE -

MEM­BERS of the Coast’s arts com­mu­nity are in­vited to be part of a con­ver­sa­tion that will help to de­velop the re­gion’s first Arts Plan.

Sun­shine Coast Coun­cil, in part­ner­ship with CQ Univer­sity, is rolling out a com­mu­nity en­gage­ment pro­gram de­signed to un­der­stand the needs of the re­gion’s arts sec­tor.

Arts Port­fo­lio Coun­cil­lor Rick Baberowski said it was im­por­tant to speak with the peo­ple who would be at the heart of the new plan.

“In June last year coun­cil ap­pointed the Sun­shine Coast Arts Ad­vi­sory Board to pro­vide strate­gic ad­vice and di­rec­tion for coun­cil as it de­vel­ops a fu­ture agenda for arts across the re­gion,” Cr Baberowski said.

“To get the con­ver­sa­tion started, the board de­vel­oped a dis­cus­sion pa­per that out­lines po­ten­tial vi­sions, goals, strate­gies, op­por­tu­ni­ties and chal­lenges.

“We are now invit­ing all artists and those in­volved in the arts and cul­tural sec­tor on the Sun­shine Coast to have their say by sign­ing up to be part of the con­ver­sa­tion via coun­cil’s web­site.”
