Arts & Culture Plan

The Shire's Arts and Culture Plan 2020-2024 strongly reflects the voice of our community and sets a vision for encouraging a rich, inclusive and vibrant culture on the Mornington Peninsula. Through this Plan, we will strengthen the capacity of our community and create an environment in which the arts flourish through Council’s involvement, support and investment in places and spaces, cultural activities and arts practice for the next five years.

Our Arts and Culture 2024 articulates the long-term benefits of growing and valuing culture in the Mornington Peninsula. The goals and strategies developed from over 1000 people's feedback aim to build community capacity by enabling people and places to thrive.

The Plan focuses on valuing our creative industries and cultural economy, access to broader arts and cultural experiences for our whole community and celebrating and enabling arts and culture on the Peninsula.
