Three phases of community consultation were applied to develop Ballarat’s Creative City Strategy. These phases were intense and innovative, designed to bring the creative community into the heart of decision making. People envisioned the future of Ballarat through creative means – from play, to drawing and making.
The strategy is dedicated to increasing creative participation, attracting and supporting creative talent and developing a world-class creative city. Our intrinsic spirit is applied to consolidating Ballarat as an internationally-notable centre for arts and culture, and applying it to our city’s continuous innovation, economic growth and social sustainability.
