Overview

The City of Greater Geelong is delighted to present our draft Arts and Cultural Strategy 2021-2031, a framework and vision that will guide and strengthen arts and culture in Geelong for the next 10 years.

The draft Strategy aims to create a more sustainable and thriving region through investing in arts and culture, supporting creative communities and helping the industry to recover from the impacts of COVID-19.

More than 1000 voices have already contributed to the development of this draft strategy. The strategy focuses the City's attention on priorities for the sector and the community's aspirations and leadership. It will be supported by a four-year implementation and action plan.

We invite you to review the draft Arts & Cultural Strategy here or in the document library on the right hand side of this page before providing your feedback below.
