Creative Strategy

Swan Hill Rural City is full of creative people, and chances are you are one of them.

You might create craft at home or with a group, visit the Library or go to live shows and exhibitions. Maybe you’re part of a book club, take photographs, paint, sing or create digital art on your home computer.

No matter what your creative connection, we want to hear from you.

We’re developing a Creative Strategy for our municipality. It will guide arts and cultural engagement for the next four years, generate opportunities for arts and culture activities in the Swan Hill region, and set the path towards enhancing the region’s reputation for creativity.

Art consultants Bryce Ives and Merryn Tinkler have been engaged to develop the strategy and will run a series of community workshops. There is also an online survey available for those who can’t attend the workshops.

Community members from all walks of life are encouraged to get involved and consider topics like:

  • How arts, culture and the creative sectors can shape the vibrancy and success of the region.
  • Aspirations for improving your creative community.
  • What must the Swan Hill region maintain in the future, what must we strengthen?
  • What does the Swan Hill region want to be known for creatively and culturally?

Please register your attendance at the workshops using the form below.
