Maroondah Arts Advisory Committee

The Maroondah community has told us they want to live in a creative and vibrant city where arts and culture are recognised and celebrated as part of everyday life.

Maroondah is experiencing an exciting stage of growth and development in arts and cultural interest, activity and profile.

Council has established an Arts Advisory Committee to assist in further realising the community’s aspirations for a culturally rich and vibrant Maroondah. The Committee is comprised of three Councillors and community and industry representatives who live, work or who have expertise relevant to the arts in Maroondah.

The Committee will:

  • provide advice and support for the development of key strategic directions for arts and cultural development in Maroondah, including the development of the Maroondah Arts and Cultural Development Strategy
  • advocate for the arts in Maroondah
  • provide advice on key cultural policy and planning considerations
  • advise on approvals such as public art commissions
  • promote integration across other committees and advisory groups of Council including for example Maroondah Disability Advisory Committee, Maroondah Community Safety Committee and Maroondah Business Advisory Committee.

 

The Maroondah Arts Advisory Committee was established to inform and advise Council on the community’s vision for a creative and culturally vibrant Maroondah as outlined in Maroondah 2040 and key Council cultural policies and strategies, including the Arts and Cultural Development Strategy.
