Council's cultural plan

Our cultural plan is the product of significant community consultation. Hundreds of people contributed to the plan through focus groups, planning discussions and by completing a community survey.

The plan provides a framework to guide Council's engagement with cultural activities throughout the Tweed:

The consultation informed the definition of culture and the 5 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.

Please note that the current Plan is due for review.

Musicians - expression of interest

Tweed Shire Council is developing a database of musicians in the Tweed. This is part of Council’s effort to raise awareness of the local music scene. The database is a resource that Council will use to engage musicians in the future.

Council invites musicians based in the Tweed to complete the Expression of Interest Form(PDF, 608KB) and send to:
