The Greater CREATIVE Bendigo Strategy was adopted in 2019, and is now due for review.

As the City reviews the strategy, community and stakeholder were given an opportunity to provide feedback on the City's delivery of the strategy, to gain insight into what the community feel could be the arts and culture priorities for the City of Greater Bendigo moving forward.

Feedback from the community will assist the City to identify strengths, trends, gaps and future priorities.

The survey was open for all of Greater Bendigo community to have a say. Feedback has now been reviewed and will contribute to the evaluation of the Greater Creative Bendigo Strategy. Information gathered will inform priorities in the future development of an Arts and Creative Industries Action Plan.

This stage of engagement for this project has now closed. The draft list of actions that will be available for community feedback later this year.

You can review the outcomes of the community survey below.
