The City of Darwin arts plan 2015-2020 provides a strategic context and intent for arts and cultural investment by the council.
The key themes and goals have been developed as a result of conversations with the community and also support Council’s key strategic priorities. The Arts Plan sets out a focus for future programs with each theme listing goals with a number of commitments to actions over the five years of this Plan.
The four themes that have been identified as priorities for 2015 -2020 are:
- Public Art
- Creative Spaces
- Access and Participation
- Arts Development, Opportunity and Connectivity
This strategic framework provides a foundation for growth and recognises what is important now to enable our vision to be realised. It provides the council with a structured means to gain a deeper understanding and experience of what it takes today and into the future, working with partners and government to build a sustainable and thriving arts community in Darwin enabling the creative sector to make a significant contribution to a quality life for all in the city. The plan also provides potential partners, peak bodies and the NT Government with a blueprint to work with the council having a clear commitment to arts and culture.
