Cairns Cultural Plan

Council has today released for comment a cultural plan: "CREATIVE TNQ: STRENGTHENING

Following extensive community participation Cairns Regional Council has drafted a cultural plan.
More than 1,000 people responded during a month long community engagement that resulted in the preliminary document and now it is time for comment on the newly evolved plan.
The public consultation showed strong community support for a Regional Performing Arts Centre, a local museum building and a program to enhance the current festivals and events programs in the region, including Festival Cairns.
The plan .... has been developed to broaden the cultural vision for the region over the next decade and beyond.
It contains strategies to guide funding for the next five years and is designed to dovetail with Council’s new Corporate Plan
Final comment on the cultural plan document is welcome and can be submitted via email by 5pm Wednesday 25 February.

Also recently announced was the formation of a new Festival Advisory Committee. Council has taken the management of Festival Cairns in house this year after the withdrawal of the preferred contractor and there are plans to further develop the festival. Submissions of interest to be part of the new advisory group close on Manday, Feb 9, so any interested persons don't have much time!
