Help shape the future of our ‘Creative Communities’
Published 14 February 2023
Arts and culture play a key role in the Moreton Bay community, but it’s time Council has a serious discussion with its residents about what they want to see at our galleries, libraries, museums and cultural events.
Mayor Peter Flannery urged residents and artists to come forward and apply to be part of Council’s new ‘Creative Communities’ engagement program.
“We love putting on fun arts events and activities for the whole family to enjoy and now we want to make them even better by finding out what our community likes and dislikes,” she said.
“We’re currently calling for expressions of interest from artists to design and deliver creative engagement activities across a range of events on our calendar to help Council attract less frequent visitors to our cultural facilities and events.
“We’ll use these events to not only engage and entertain residents but talk to them and find out key info about what they want us to deliver in the future.
“And residents have a chance to be part of a new community working group to help test arts and cultural events and workshop ideas.
“We're inviting you to attend a range of free activities throughout our Region where you can immerse yourself in creativity while talking to us about what we can do to keep you coming back for more.
“This is just one way that Council is working to create transparency with its residents and increase our service delivery to get the most out of us.
“So if you’re an artist or a community member who’d like to participate, I urge you to check out our website to apply for the Creative Communities program.”
