Dungog Shire Cultural Plan

Dungog Shire is creating a Cultural Plan to use as the basis for external funding applications to State, Commonwealth and philanthropic organisations to support cultural activities across the shire.

The Creative Ingredient has been engaged to undertake community consultation to inform the development of the Cultural Plan. 

A broad community consultation process is being conducted from Dec 2021 - March 2022, across the whole LGA. This includes: 

(a) An online and in-person survey;

(b) Four community consultation workshops, to be held in February 2022;

(c) The establishment of a Cultural Advisory Group;

(d) School assembly talks;

(e) Targeted interviews with s355 committee members, cultural practitioners and community representatives.

Please have your say by completing the Dungog Shire - Cultural Plan Community Survey.
