Draft Cultural Strategy: Online Survey

Five key strategic directions will underpin the City of Launceston's Cultural Strategy over the next decade. On 5 March 2020, Council voted to release the draft of the Cultural Strategy for community consultation. The strategy is designed to lay out a path forward for Launceston to maximise its unique cultural opportunities, and to identify what strengths and weaknesses Launceston currently has in this space.


The draft Cultural Strategy laid out five clear strategic directions for the Council:

• To respect Aboriginal Culture;

• To realise the potential of our cultural places and assets;

• To foster creative practices;

• Reveal our cultural stories; and

• Build and extend partnerships.


The draft strategy was informed by a body of work undertaken in 2017 by Robin Archer AO - Towards A Cultural Strategy for Launceston. That document evolved from interviews with Launceston, Tasmanian and national members of the arts and culture community, as well as from Ms Archer's extensive experience in and understanding of arts and culture.

The delivery of the Cultural Strategy is a Launceston City Deal initiative. Through City Deals, all levels of government listen to the local community to identify a city’s priorities, then develop an integrated plan of action. By working together, all three levels of government are ensuring the support, programs and policies are in place for Launceston to succeed.
