Consultation has concluded

Have your say now on the creative future of our city.

What is an Arts, Culture and Creativity Strategy, and why do we need one?
We want to know how you engage with arts, culture and creativity within Campbelltown. This survey will guide Campbelltown City Council’s arts, culture, and creativity investment over the next five years. This strategy is in line with the major projects already identified in essential city plans and new aspirations identified by the community during the development of this strategy.

What is arts, culture and creativity?
Arts, culture and creativity can mean different things to everyone. It is often used as interchangeable reference points when describing people’s interactions within a social or creative context.

Arts is the expression or application of creative skill, imagination and/or tradition, typically in a visual form, including but not limited to painting, sculpture, printmaking, photography, architecture, design, literature, performing arts, music, theatre, film, dance, digital expression and more.

Culture extends beyond tangible and intangible objects to include modes of interacting and the strengthening of social bonds. It is a characteristic shared between two or more people and can be an essential ingredient for a fulfilling and richly rewarding life. It helps build our sense of who we are, where we have come from, guides where we are going and clarifies our identity.

Creativity is the process that allows us the ability to think differently, explore new ideas and challenge preconceived notions. Creativity is used to solve problems in new ways to change the way we do things.

In this strategy, ‘creative life’ is defined as participation in arts, culture and creativity by the City’s community of residents, workers and visitors, and the expression of its customs, traditions, heritage and social character. It is not restricted to a specific genre, method of practice or a defined realm in which it is expressed. It dates back to our Dharawal history and continues to evolve and change to reflect Campbelltown’s growing culturally diverse communities.
