Strathbogie Shire has a strong creative sector, with many creative individuals and groups calling our region home.

To foster this, Council appointed an Arts and Culture Officer in 2021. The role was created to facilitate connections between community members, funding programs and tourism stakeholders, as well as identifying opportunities to promote arts and culture initiatives within our region.

Council’s Arts & Culture Officer plays a vital role in enhancing what our community already offers in this space and developing a platform for creatives and cultural groups to engage effectively with each other and the broader community.
