About the Hawkesbury Cultural Plan project

Hawkesbury City Council is developing a Cultural Plan as a roadmap to support and promote the ongoing improvement of the arts, heritage, and cultural activities in the region.

We know that the arts and culture enrich the lives of our community. From connecting with family and friends at the Hawkesbury Show, to discovering a new children’s activity at Hawkesbury Regional Gallery, the Cultural Plan affects everyone.

We want to hear from you to understand what you love about arts and culture and your community, and any ideas for how to make Hawkesbury a great cultural destination. Your feedback is important to help shape the Cultural Plan so that culture in the Hawkesbury can continue to provide something for everyone in our community.

What is culture?

Culture is part of our everyday shared experience that gives meaning. We find culture in the streets, in nature, in history, and in the places we visit. A cultural activity can be as simple as reading a book or watching a movie at home – to watching a live music performance or visiting your local gallery. It is about our ability to ‘tell our story’, and learn about the stories of others.

Community Survey

This survey looks at the different ways we interact with arts and culture and asks for your feedback to help shape the future of culture in our special region.
