Council is developing a cultural plan that will inform policy and assist in planning for future directions and needs in the cultural sector across the region.

To ensure broad community input to the cultural plan, council is undertaking a number of community consultations, focus groups and surveys. Some will target-specific community sectors and practitioners while others will seek contributions from participants, audiences and consumers.

Interested residents are encouraged to attend one of the upcoming focus groups focussing on broad community interests and the music industry.

A session for broad community interests will be held on Wednesday 5 November at 2.00 pm at the Maleny Show Pavilion. This will be followed by a second session at 5.30pm focussing specifically on the music industry. Additional music industry sessions will be held in Forest Glen on 12 November and Pomona on 18 November.

To book a session or if you are unable to attend a focus group but would like to be involved or kept informed of the cultural planning process contact Bernice Childs on 5472 0107.
