Arts, Culture and Heritage Community Reference Group
The Shire of Broome’s Arts, Culture and Heritage Community Reference Group will be made up of community representatives who are passionate about arts, culture and heritage. They will help drive forward the development and achievement of the Shire’s Arts, Culture and Heritage Strategy.
The Shire’s Corporate Business Plan (2021 – 2025) guides the actions undertaken in partnership with agencies and the community to drive forward the Shire’s vision for Broome – a future for everyone.
The plan contains a number of key priority outcomes including Outcome 4: an inclusive community that celebrates culture, equality and diversity. Within this outcome there are two objectives that support a thriving and impactful arts, culture and heritage sector in Broome:
- Grow knowledge, appreciation and involvement in local art, culture and heritage.
- Align services to meet diverse community needs.
To enable a partnership approach to accomplishing these objectives, the Shire of Broome will establish an Arts, Culture and Heritage Community Reference Group (ACHG).
The purpose of the Arts, Culture and Heritage Community Reference Group is as follows:
- Provide input and feedback into the development of the Arts, Culture and Heritage Strategy.
- Ensure the community and key stakeholders are appropriately engaged in the development of the Arts, Culture and Heritage Strategy.
- Act as a conduit between the Shire of Broome, Council and the community.
The group will meet on a regular basis as agreed by the group and meetings will be held during business hours.
The Terms of Reference (TOR) were endorsed by Shire Council at the meeting held on the October 28, 2021 and can be read here(PDF, 405KB).
The closing date for expressing interest in joining the ACHG is 4pm on Wednesday, December 22 2021. A physical copy of the EOI form can be downloaded from the Related Information section, or filled out below.
The proposed ACHG membership will then be presented for endorsement at the Council Meeting to be held on 25 February 2022.
