Feedback Sought on Mt Barker Draft Arts Plan


Mount Barker District residents are encouraged to take a look at the Council’s draft arts plan.

Consultants from Play Your Part have worked with Council to formulate a draft Arts Plan that provides a framework for Council and the community to develop and support creative activities and nurture artistic talent over the next five years.

Following strong community demand during consultation on the Annual Business Plan, the council included $50,000 in the budget for an Arts Officer, and to implement the Arts Plan in 2023.

Yelaina Eaton, Team Leader Community Development says residents have told Council they want access to arts activities that celebrate the region's local identity and that enhance the landscape. 

 “We want Mount Barker to be a place that offers captivating arts experiences that celebrate the character of the region and boosts tourism to the district," Yelaina Eaton said.

Consultation on the draft Arts Plan concludes 31 August. Have a read of the draft Arts Plan and have your say at https://yoursay.mountbarker.sa.gov.au/draft-arts-plan
