The Shire has developed the Arts and Culture Strategy and Action Plan in recognition of the importance of arts, culture, and heritage to Broome.

The Strategy determines the arts and culture sector’s needs and long-term ambitions, and how they can be supported and enhanced by Shire investment. The Arts and Culture Strategy and Action Plan was devised with consultant, Element Advisory, and stakeholders as part of the Arts, Culture and Heritage Community Reference Group (ACHRG) which included Nyamba Buru Yawuru, Magabala Books, Marrugeku, Kimberley Arts Network, Theatre Kimberley, Shinju Matsuri, Goolarri Media, Nagula Jarndu, and the Broome Historical Society.

The community consultation process focused on gaining feedback from the wider community, particularly remote communities such as Beagle Bay, Lombadina, Djarindjin, Ardyaloon, and Bidyadanga. The engagement process included several targeted workshops, meetings with stakeholders, and an industry night. We believe that this approach has enabled us to capture the needs and aspirations of our diverse community.
