This AIP has now been adopted at the Council meeting on 21 August 2023.
Thank you to everyone who has provide time and feedback on preparing this plan.
Please note that our action and investment plans are roadmaps for how we can achieve Our Direction, but we cannot fund all of them all at once. Most of the “priority actions” within each plan have are currently included in our working draft Long-term Plan 2024-2034 (as at July 2023), and this is clearly shown in the action tables within each plan. When the Long-term Plan is finalised next year, we will go back and update the actions in these plans to reflect final Long-term Plan funding decisions.
For reference, here is the earlier draft AIP that went out for feedback in May 2023

We have a thriving arts, culture and heritage scene that supports social and economic wellbeing for the region, and our communities have told us they would like to see more support and investment in this area.
We want to build on this support and provide a clear plan for what actions we will take to continue to support and celebrate arts, culture and heritage, together.
We’re not starting from scratch. We’re building on the great work that has already been done to create an Arts, Culture and Heritage Action and Investment Plan.
