Strategy for Culture and the Arts 2022

As part of Cairns Regional Council’s Cultural Planning team from 2016-2018, Olivia worked with Cultural Planner Lesley Buckley towards to the development of Cairns Regional Council’s Strategy for Culture and the Arts 2022. The development of the Strategy included an extensive period of consultation with over 47 arts groups and organisations in the Cairns region, to gain an understanding of the range of challenges, strengths, priorities and areas of opportunity in the Cairns cultural and arts sectors. 

“Cultural Planning plays an important role in decision making and guides the delivery of cultural services. Cairns Regional Council’s Strategy for Culture and the Arts 2022 provides a framework for Council to prioritise, coordinate and manage the city’s resources, and deliver ongoing programming and provision of grants and infrastructure that will stimulate and sustain the cultural and creative vitality of the region.”
