Port Macquarie-Hastings Council is committed to ensuring arts, heritage and culture play a strong role in the development of the Port Macquarie-Hastings region’s future, its identity and sense of place.
Council currently plays a major part in delivering cultural services across the region, and is supported by the ever-growing number of community organisations, events and activities that contribute to ensuring that our community is diverse, resilient and connected.
Council also has a leadership role in assisting the growth and development of arts and cultural activity. A strong arts and cultural framework will contribute to the delivery of the four key objectives of the Towards 2030 Community Strategic Plan.
