New City of Palmerston Arts & Creative Industries Plan 

City of Palmerston are creating a new arts strategy for 2022-2027 and we want to hear from those in Palmerston and surrounds who have a stake in the arts (audience, artists, arts workers, and everything in between). You don’t need to be living within Palmerston, as I suspect one of the focuses of the plan will be how to better integrate the Palmerston and Rural and Darwin Arts overlap. 

The City of Palmerston is developing its new Arts and Creative Industries Strategy for 2023-2027. Territory based consultants Matrix on Board Consulting have been engaged to work with the community and Council to develop a five year strategy to support participation and engagement in the arts across the diverse population and economy of the  City of Palmerston footprint. Involving the artists and arts and cultural organisations who call Palmerston home or use workshop, class, exhibition or performance venues across Palmerston’s footprint is a crucial part of developing a useful strategy.
You are invited to complete a survey for community members and artists based in Palmerston and its surrounds. Your experiences, opinions and ideas are highly valued and appreciated.

The survey takes about 5 minutes and be completed at the following link
If you have any questions about the strategy or the survey, please contact Sally Clifford ( Matrix) on 0418 761 036 or Kyle Walmsley, City of Palmerston Community Development Officer (Arts and Culture) on 0418 950 801
