Strathbogie Shire Council has released its draft Arts and Culture Strategy which aims to increase opportunities for creative stimulation and connectedness, increase arts and cultural experiences, preserve heritage and foster diverse cultural sustainability in the shire.

Strathbogie Shire Mayor, Cr Amanda McClaren sits on the Arts and Culture Advisory Group who have developed the draft Arts and Culture Strategy.

“Council recognised the need for a greater focus on supporting and developing arts and culture within our communities, which was highlighted by our community at the beginning of our Council’s term and features in our Council Plan,” Cr McClaren explained.

“We had great conversations with our community during the development of the strategy and what we heard was that people wanted more opportunities to tell their stories and celebrate local identities, more opportunities for entertainment and community events and better access to arts and cultural experiences,” Cr McClaren said.

“What we have created is a strategy that looks to achieve these things by stimulating creativity and connectedness, supporting growth and learning and supporting our community to preserve and celebrate our culture.”

Strathbogie Shire Council yesterday opened the new deep water boat ramp at the Goulburn River, providing better and safer access to the waterways for boating and fishing.

The new boat ramp will provide free 24-hour access to the river, including new car and trailer parking, and was officially opened with Katherine Grech, the Director of Better Boating Victoria.

The $494,795 project included a $100,000 contribution from Council, a $100,000 donation of the cost of the land from the Ryan family and a contribution of $294,795 from Department of Transport.

This comes after a recent announcement of the abolition of boat ramp fees at the Nagambie Lakes and Goulburn River, as part of the Labor Government’s investment in boating and fishing across the state.
