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.

A supporting document, What’s The Cultural Picture? A Snapshot of the Tweed Shire at was created to encourage feedback for the Cultural Plan.
