Central Coast Council has placed its draft Cultural Plan 2020-2025 on exhibition, for the community to have their say.

The draft Cultural Plan supports the Central Coast achieving its potential as a creative destination and provides opportunities for people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities to participate in, and contribute to, the cultural life of the Central Coast.

Council’s Director Connected Communities, Julie Vaughan said that creativity and cultural identity was a large and important part of our region.

“A thriving arts and cultural sector is important for the health and wellbeing of our community and for regional economic development,” Ms Vaughan said.

“The draft Plan is based on the vision of building on our creative strengths across our community and establishing our region as a hub for the wider creative sector.

“Creativity is a major part of who we are on the Central Coast. The draft Plan will assist us with building a welcoming and lively region to showcase our diverse and inclusive cultural identity.

“This includes the development of dedicated locations to host the creation and showcasing of rich artistic offerings and the telling of the stories of our past and present.”

Mayor Lisa Matthews is calling on residents from across the Central Coast to add their voice to the discussion and help shape the Plan.

“Over many years Council and the community have made a considerable investment in arts and cultural development,” Mayor Matthews said.

“This Plan builds on this substantial platform and provides a framework for further investment around a shared vision.

“It outlines the direction for a vibrant, creative, welcoming community brimming with cultural vitality.

“I encourage everyone to contribute.”

The draft Cultural Plan is available for comment before 15 November 2019.

The community is also invited to register for information sessions on Wednesday 30 October at The Erina Centre and Thursday 31 October at The Art House.
