Council would like your feedback on the future of culture and creativity in North Sydney.

Please complete our Community Survey for your chance to win a $100 gift voucher.


How to get involved:


Background

Culture and creative activities bring our community together, whether it's enjoying or making music, theatre, dancing, writing, visual arts, digital media and games, our heritage, design, fashion, or participating in community festivals and events. In North Sydney, we recognise, enable and celebrate First Nations culture. We believe we all have a role to play in the culture and creativity of North Sydney.


Key themes

To help guide the conversation, we have identified the following themes in the Culture and Creativity Discussion Paper:

  1. Culture and creativity for everyone – how can we make sure everyone can participate and feel welcome, regardless of age, ability, background or income, now and into the future?
  2. Spaces and places for participation and production how do people use our spaces and places for culture and creativity now, and what are the needs and possibilities for the future?
  3. Supporting and partnering with the creative sector – how can we help our artists and creatives build capacity to showcase their work and connect with the broader community?
  4. Sharing our diverse stories – how can we preserve our history and heritage and connect more people to our First Nations, multicultural and migrant stories?
  5. North Sydney as a cultural and creative destination – how can we promote ourselves as a great place for visitors, while balancing the needs of our local residents?
  6. Investing in culture and creativity – how can we look at other ways to fund cultural and creative initiatives?

About this consultation

Council is seeking feedback on five Discussion Papers (Culture and Creativity, Economic Development, Integrated Transport, Open Space and Recreation, and Social Inclusion) via online surveys (open 12 May – 23 June) and community forums.

The information we collect will help to identify the needs and aspirations of the North Sydney community and will be used to develop a series of strategies that will in turn inform our new 2025-2035 Community Strategic Plan, Delivery Programs and Operational Plans. They will determine our priorities and ensure that Council’s resources are focused on delivering outcomes needed and wanted by our community.


$100 prize draw

Everyone who provides feedback via our online surveys has the option to go into a prize draw to win a weekly $100 gift voucher. There are 4 x $100 gift vouchers available in total. The winners will be drawn at random each week from Tuesday 4 June – Tuesday 25 June inclusive and announced the same day. It is strictly one entry per person per focus area survey.
