Your Bright Ideas

Thank you to the 913 people who completed the online survey to help steer the Cultural Vision for the City of Melville.

The information provided by you will help us decide how best to use the resources we have, encourage the sharing of those resources, and prepare for the new City Centre Library and Cultural Centre that will open in 2021.

We are currently reviewing the information provided by you in the survey as well as information from the community cultural leaders forum, children’s forum and staff sessions to create a unique direction for the City of Melville’s cultural future. The Plan is due for completion in July 2017 where it will be made available to the community.

Thank you once again for being part of the conversation. Please continue to share your bright ideas with us as we continue to have creative conversations about Culture, including Public Art, Library upgrades and planning for our City Centre Library and Cultural Centre.

About the Cultural Services Strategic Plan

We are currently working to develop a new strategic plan.

We want the City of Melville to be a vibrant, liveable and optimistic place.

We already have fantastic cultural assets like our libraries, museums, galleries, open spaces, and dedicated community groups who nourish our love of art, craft, music, dance and creative expression of all kinds

Our current Cultural Vitality Plan has come to an end. So has our Future Plan for Libraries and Museums.

Now is the time to step back, see what’s changed, talk to lots of people, and then launch a new cultural plan that will guide our decision making for the next five years.

The plan will help us decide how best to use the resources we have, encourage the sharing of those resources, and prepare for the new Library and Cultural Centre that will open in 2021.

The WA government has recently released a cultural vision for the state.

It’s an exciting time to be in Melville because our vision can build on and speak to this important statewide cultural strategy.

Our cultural vision needs to be specific to our community, though.

That’s why we need your input and ideas.

We are asking our staff, community, partners and creatives to help build this vision in a series of Creative Conversations about Culture.
