The Shire nurtures and promotes our creative community across the Mornington Peninsula.
Cultural experiences enrich our lives. It helps us celebrate our identity and strengthens our connection to where we live.
“The Mornington Peninsula is home to a growing creative community. From the diverse arts and cultural practices of our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples to contemporary music, visual and performing arts, festivals, maker markets and more, our creative and cultural sector provides unique opportunities for celebrating our spectacular natural environment and appreciating our shared and different identities, histories, insights and ideas. As such, it represents a significant asset for locals and visitors alike.
A vibrant arts and cultural sector helps communities thrive. Language, history, education, music, art, and architecture are among the most important ways we shape our identities and express ourselves in daily life.”
An Arts & Culture Plan is a document that sets a vision and guide for Council’s involvement and investment in cultural activities and arts practice in the community and develops strategic priorities to effectively plan for rich, vibrant culture in the Mornington Peninsula.
