The Cultural Plan provides a framework to guide Council’s engagement with cultural activities across Tweed Shire over the next four years. It updates Council’s existing cultural policy, which was first developed in 1999.

The Cultural Plan is the product of significant community consultation undertaken across Tweed Shire in 2016. Hundreds of people contributed to the plan through focus groups, planning discussions and by completing a community survey. The consultation has informed the definition of culture and the themes adopted for the plan.

The Cultural Plan is structured around five themes which reflect the information and feedback received through community consultation:

  • Sense of Place
  • Enterprisingly Creative
  • Acknowledging Bundjalung Country
  • Every Day Live and Play
  • Making Things Discoverable
These themes are linked to key elements of Council’s Community Strategic Plan through a series of significant projects and programs.
