Creating an Arts Plan for the Sunshine Coast
This is an exciting time for arts on the Sunshine Coast.
The Sunshine Coast Arts Advisory Board, together with council, are in the process of developing the regions first Arts Plan.
Between September and November 2017, council and CQ University rolled out an engagement program with the community to understand the needs of the regions arts sector.
To get the conversation started, the board developed a discussion paper that outlined potential visions, goals, strategies, opportunities and challenges. The discussion paper can be found below.
The engagement program involved events and workshops run by council and 11 local arts influencers, surveys and online ideas forums.
The input from the artist-centred community engagement program is now being collated and the Draft Sunshine Coast Arts Plan will be prepared in early 2018.
The Draft Plan will then be presented to council and will be released for broad community consultation in the first half of 2018.
