Nourish the cultural needs of the outer metro.
Enhance participation in outer metro suburbs.
Provide agency through creative participation.
Local governments have become increasingly active in grass roots arts and cultural activity. But, there is a noticeable lack of collaboration between state and local governments in servicing our cultural needs.
Outer metro communities are some of the most culturally diverse in the state.
At this time of economic and social stress, arts and culture can foster greater social cohesion within our community.
Our call to action: Continue to fund the Outer Metro Fund. A $2 Million investment over four years will enhance participation and engagement in arts and cultural programs from outer metro audiences, including Indigenous and culturally diverse communities.
