The City of Ballarat is seeking tenders from qualified consultants to prepare a long-term strategy to elevate Ballarat to the status of Australia’s leading Creative City.
The project will be all-encompassing, focussing not only on traditional arts, but also other forms of creative industries, including theatre, public art, film, live music, visual arts and grassroot-level events.
The work being tendered includes the development of:
- A strategy to guide the ongoing development of arts & culture and other creative industries in Ballarat
- A master plan to guide the future development of the arts & culture precinct in the city. It will include a feasibility study for the expansion of the Art Gallery of Ballarat.
This process will include an extensive three-phase community consultation period and is expected to be completed by late 2018.
