Developing our new Cultural Plan

Public Submission

Dubbo and the region is experiencing a period of exciting change and transformation. We are growing, developing and evolving, into a dynamic, globally-connected city that is setting the vision for significant cultural and economic development for our region. 

Dubbo Regional Council (DRC) has recently developed a new Cultural Development Team that will lead a bold new approach to how regional centres promote and showcase culture. Moving beyond the walls of galleries and theatres, the team aims to transmit culture throughout our region and beyond, identifying and developing partnerships to support cultural production, community well-being, social inclusion, economic development, sustainability, activation and tourism growth. We envisage a region where culture touches each and every citizen and visitor.

To support this, DRC is developing a new Cultural Plan to strengthen and embolden our region for the immense opportunities and challenges that unprecedented growth brings. To develop this plan, we need the community to assist us in sharing their vision of what the cultural future looks like and how we will get there.


Free, public sessions will be held for the community to share their vision and contribute to the development of the new cultural plan. These sessions will be held on, 

* Some venues awaiting confirmation, please check closer to the date.
