The public can have their say and help shape Wollongong’s creative and cultural landscape.
Encouraging live music and activating the city after dark feature in Wollongong City Council’s new creative plan.
The draft Creative Wollongong 2019-2024 document will be on public exhibition until February 12.
According to council, Creative Wollongong, the draft Cultural Plan, sets out how council “will support local artists and creative industries, encourage live music, activate our city after dark and celebrate our suburbs”.
The draft framework is to replace council’s previous Cultural Plan, which expired at the end of 2018.
The new draft plan was informed by an engagement process with more than 796 local creatives, community members, business owners and council staff.
The plan has four broad focus areas: creative life; creative community; creative spaces and places; and the city after dark.
The draft strategy is available here.
It can also be viewed at council’s libraries.
