Arts Strategy review

Council invites the arts community to take a survey to share your views on the arts in Palmerston North. Your answers will help us prioritise what our Arts Strategy should focus on.

What do you love about the look and feel of Palmerston North?

The Arts Strategy sets the direction for Council investment in the arts.

The current strategy is designed to make the arts accessible for everyone. It’s about encouraging people from a range of backgrounds and cultures to get involved and share their passion and skills.

It focuses on five drivers:

  • strengthening leadership and bringing people together
  • enhancing the look and feel of the city
  • increasing participation
  • celebrating diversity and culture
  • improving access to the arts

We’re beginning to review the strategy. To kick start the discussion we’ve created a simple survey so you can share your views on the arts in Palmerston North. It will take around 15 to 20 minutes to complete.

Your answers will help us identify where we are now and what some of the opportunities might be for the future.

The responses will be presented to Councillors later in the year and will inform the development of the new strategy. The draft of this strategy will then go out for public consultation next year.

The survey closes on 7 October.
