Moira Shire communities recognise that a creative community concept is inclusive of all arts forms, and also has a broader reach to include architects, town planners, landscapers, engineers, performers, artists and musicians, all those who are creative.
Moira Shire Council also recognises the role the arts play in developing social wellbeing across all age levels and abilities and its essential role in promoting community resilience and recovery in times of crisis.
This strategy has been developed using surveys, cultural mapping, community engagement and consultation. We have relied on research conducted at state and federal levels to inform our goals, and to capitalise on funding opportunities as they arise.
This strategy was adopted by Council on 18 December 2019
