As part of the review of the Greater CREATIVE Strategy, the City of Greater Bendigo invited community members to complete a short survey on the local arts and creative industries, and the community's experiences of arts and culture. Thank you for your contributions.

The survey questions related to the five strategy areas.

An important part of this review was to encourage responses that reflect the diversity of the Greater Bendigo community. Questions aimed to gain insight on community perceptions of the value of arts cultural experiences, the types of arts and cultural experiences the community are participating in, and what experiences the community would like to attend in the future.
