Arts and Culture in Newcastle
City of Newcastle recognises the importance of arts and culture to social wellbeing and diverse and resilient communities. Through culture and the creative arts we tell our city's story, share our histories and understand our identity - what is unique to us and what we share.
That's why we are developing a new arts and cultural event to round out the city’s thriving cultural calendar.
Community Engagement for this project began in October 2019. The event will be shaped from the feedback we have collected from residents across the local government area along with visual artists, musicians and performers.
The Community Engagement phase for this project is now complete - thank you to everyone who provided their feedback!
In light of public health concerns and NSW Government restrictions on events due to COVID-19, the timeline for delivery of the City’s new cultural event is being reviewed. To stay up to date with developments, keep an eye on this webpage and our social media channels.
The full Community Engagement Report for this project is now available.
