Engagement closed in March

Thank you to everyone who participated. An engagement report will be available soon.

Wyndham City Council is excited to develop Creative Wyndham - a strategy that will celebrate our vibrant and creative community.

Creative Wyndham will act as a roadmap to help Council plan for the delivery of creative infrastructure, programs and growing creative industries to increase our city's vibrancy and creativity. Actions in the strategy will be delivered by various areas of Council to ensure that our community receives the best possible service and value across all creative activities and events programs.

Council has engaged consultant Hodyl & Co to draft the Creative Wyndham Strategy. The strategy will be designed to match the community’s values with the investments we make in the creative space. Why? Because it's important to meet our community's creative growth as our city continues to rapidly expand.

The Creative Wyndham Strategy will aim to identify:

  • A vision and framework to grow Wyndham's creative activities, events and industries.
  • What matters most to the community.
  • Putting our resources where they matter most to you.
  • Clarification of Council's role and yours so that we can bring Creative Wyndham to life!

These can include a diverse range of activities and programs delivered by Council, at libraries and community centres, galleries and open spaces, for example:
