Arts and Cultural Plan 2015-2025

Our Arts and Cultural Plan 2015-2025 guides the approach to cultural investment and activity for the Gympie region.

Our key objectives are to:

  • recognise the vital role arts and culture play in the wellbeing, prosperity and distinctiveness of the region
  • provide space and opportunity for people to express themselves creatively, come together and share experiences as a community
  • celebrate and protect a rich history that continues to inform and shape our futures
  • support local careers and skill development in the creative industries
  • harness the location, environment and cultural assets of the region to attract visitors and investment
  • enhance liveability, lifestyle and well-being for residents
  • effect a culture shift within Council which acknowledges and considers cultural outcomes across each business area.


The Plan focuses on four strategic outcomes:

  • People - shaping the region’s local culture through the stories, values, creativity, generosity and passion of our residents.
  • Place - inspiration from our natural environment to provide accessible, active community spaces and facilities.
  • Past - our history informs the future and ensures our cultural heritage is valued, shared and protected.
  • Possibility - use of creativity to forge opportunities to grow, innovate, plan and achieve.


Council recently conducted a review of the Arts and Cultural Plan.
