About Arts Moreland

Moreland boasts an excellent arts offering, including venues for exhibitions and performances, world-class festivals and activities, and the Counihan Gallery in Brunswick.

Arts and Culture Strategy

Our Moreland Arts Strategy 2017-22 (PDF 4Mb) guides our commitment to strengthening the creative sector and enhancing Moreland as a destination for the arts. This strategy is also available as a Microsoft Word document (Moreland Arts Strategy 2017-22 (DOC 6Mb)).

The strategy outlines how we aim to enhance the capacity of Moreland's creative sector to maintain and grow creative practices and increase participation in our arts and culture program for the whole community.

We deliver this through the following three key roles.

  1. As a Producer where we initiate, coordinate and deliver events, festivals, programs, and exhibitions.
  2. As a Supporter where we encourage a thriving creative sector through investment, facilitation, and advocacy.
  3. As a Cultivator where we employ various strategies to engage with the community and build arts audiences across our community.
