Maribyrnong Council’s Arts and Cultural Services role is to enhance and preserve arts and cultural practices unique to the people, landscapes and history of this community.
Through the Strategic Arts Framework, they fund, broker and commission a dynamic range of arts and cultural activities. The program provides the community and local artists with collaborative opportunities to develop their creativity, and to participate as audience members and to perform or develop work in local artistic venues.
Arts and Cultural Services play a role in developing our City’s vibrant multicultural community identity, and promoting our community’s arts and cultural achievements to the world.
Maribyrnong Council will be selecting the Excellence in Creative Arts Award.
