Arts, culture and events

We value creativity and the arts, heritage and cultural ambitions of our community

Council is proactive in providing opportunities for the creative community to exhibit, present and sell and for the community to engage with, learn from and value creative and cultural activity.

Our Cultural Services team is committed to creating programs and planning events that present new ideas and creative expression within the visual arts, cultural development, literacy and heritage.
