#CREATE5290 - a Cultural and Heritage plan for Mount Gambier

The City of Mount Gambier is embarking on the development of a Cultural and Heritage Plan, creating an exciting opportunity to unpack and explore our cultural values and aspirations as a community.

A key initiative of Council’s Community Plan – The Futures Paper 2016-2020, the Cultural and Heritage Plan will not only articulate our strengths as a creative community, but will become a blueprint on how we can grow and evolve our City to become an even stronger and more vibrant cultural place.

This is our opportunity to recognise and acknowledge where we have come from, articulate who we are now, and explore the cultural opportunities that we can seize for our future.

The plan will identify our priorities, inform future decision making and clarify the strategies and initiatives to celebrate and further develop the current and future role of arts, culture and heritage in our community.

We’re calling on artists, audiences, local industry and cultural champions to collaborate with Council in the creation of the Cultural Plan.

We want to hear from cinema goers, wine lovers, gallery groupies, history buffs, muso’s, promoters, goal-attackers, wing-backers, poets, printmakers, pinterest-aholics, candlestick makers, ticket buyers, ticket sellers, dancers (good and bad), beer pourers, coffee drinkers, writers, story tellers… and everyone inbetween!

Play your part of further shaping the cultural identity of Mount Gambier by:

  • Mapping the important creative and cultural places and spaces in Mount Gambier

  • Brainstorming our vision for a creative life for Mount Gambier

  • Completing the visioning survey

  • Adding your thoughts to the #Create5290 chalkboards as you see them around the City.
