Saturday Sessions

The Tweed Shire Council Cultural Plan 2018-2021 (1.84mB PDF) provides a framework to guide Council’s engagement with cultural activities throughout the shire.

It was adopted in November 2017 and updates Council’s existing cultural policy, which was first developed in 1999.

Hundreds of people contributed to the plan during significant community consultation in 2016, through focus groups, planning discussions and by completing a community survey. The consultation informed the definition of culture and the five themes that underpin the plan:

  • Sense of Place
  • Enterprisingly Creative
  • Acknowledging Bundjalung Country
  • Every Day Live and Play
  • Making Things Discoverable

These themes are linked to key elements of Council’s Community Strategic Plan, through a series of significant projects and programs.

Take a look at the supporting document, What’s The Cultural Picture? A Snapshot of the Tweed Shire (PDF), which was created to encourage feedback for the Cultural Plan.

Placemaking and Public Art - Integrated Cultural Opportunities Survey

The Integrated Cultural Opportunities Survey (128kB PDF) - or ICOS form - is for individuals or organisations proposing to create public artworks in Tweed Shire. The ICOS form provides information that helps Council make decisions about public art.

The information included on the form helps ensure that ongoing Public Art Programs are strategically planned, adequately resourced and effectively managed. The ICOS form only relates to new artworks owned by Council or on Council controlled land. The ICOS form should be read alongside Council's Placemaking and Public Art Policy (59kB PDF).

Saturday Sessions – Music in the park (Kingscliff)

Saturday Sessions – Music in the park is hosted by Tweed Coast Holiday Parks and Tweed Shire Council at the stage in Rowan Robinson Park, Kingscliff.

Local artists, musicians and bands perform live each month in one of the most beautiful ‘venues’ around. Come and enjoy some great, free live music to wind down on Saturday afternoon, or to warm-up for going out on Saturday night!

Starting in July 2019, Saturday Sessions will occur on the first Saturday each month at the earlier time of 3pm to 6pm. Keep up to date with announcements about upcoming shows on Council's Facebook events page (external link).

Musicians - Expression of Interest

Tweed Shire Council is in the process of developing a database of musicians within Tweed Shire. This is part of Council’s effort to become more aware of the local music scene. The database is also a resource that Council can turn to if opportunities to engage musicians come up in the future. Council invites musicians based in Tweed Shire to complete the following Musicians - Expression of Interest Form (608kB PDF). The form can be submitted to: tsc@tweed.nsw.gov.au.
