Draft Cultural Action Plan 2016-2020


What is the Cultural Action Plan?

It sets out a plan for the implementation of the Marrickville Cultural Policy and incorporates key strategic directions for arts and cultural development over the next four years. It will guide the development of future strategies and procedures to enhance local creativity, arts and culture.

How was it developed?

In 2008, Marrickville Council commissioned a significant cultural mapping project to uncover the issues and opportunities for arts and culture locally and set a direction for the future. The information from this mapping project has been built upon by regular feedback from local groups and committees.

In developing the Cultural Action Plan 2016-2020, we drew on this research and community feedback. We also checked-in on how key priorities were changing in 2015 through the #creativemarrickville campaign, by calling out to the local community on instagram, other social media and through surveys.

What will the plan concentrate on?

The plan commits Council to deliver specific outcomes in three areas -

‘The Creative Life’

Priorities

  • Opportunities for children and young people to nurture their creativity

  • Creative diversity and local heritage are valued and visible

  • Marrickville is fertile ground for creative innovation and entrepreneurs

‘The Creative Community’

Priorities

  • Co-curate Marrickville’s arts and culture programs with the creative community

  • Activate public places with local creativity

  • Marrickville libraries are community centres of information, learning, curiosity and technology

The Creative Economy’.

Priorities are

  • Marrickville’s creative diversity and street life are magnets for cultural tourism

  • Creatives have space to work and present

  • Marrickville’s live music sector keeps its character
