Arts & culture

Cultural Services

Council works closely with the creative industries, multicultural groups, peak government bodies, business, tourism and the broader community to foster creativity. We run two of the City's key cultural venues and offer a wide range of creative programs.


Council owns and operates two of the City's key performance venues which attract national and international acts as well as providing a platform for local artists. 

We also run the region's ticketing service as we do provide ticketing for events outside the City - ticketLiNK.


Many of Council's creative programs are provided by Cultural Services with an emphasis on capacity building to continual develop and strengthen the creative industries in the City. 

Public Art Advisory Committee

Council's Public Art Advisory Committee has been established to provide recommendations to Council and contribute to the on-going development and implementation of Council's 2012-2017 Public Art Plan. Membership of the Public Art Advisory Committee (PAAC) is in a voluntary capacity. Members have a broad base of experience and/or expertise in public art practice, public art policy, urban planning/design, landscape architecture/design, and local community and/or business.
