Residents of Liverpool Plains Shire Council (LPSC) are invited to attend consultative workshops for the development of arts and cultural activity in the shire.
Rob Gebert Arts Consultancy will be working with the council and the community in the preparation of a Liverpool Plains shire arts and cultural plan, and will be hosting the workshops at the end of May.
"The workshops provide an opportunity for community members to provide input to the vision for the future of arts and culture in the shire, to identify the needs of the community and to develop ideas and initiatives as part of the plan," Mr Gebert said.
"Everyone is welcome to attend the workshops whether you are a consumer, participant or creator of arts and cultural activities."
Liverpool Plains mayor Rob Hooke said arts, culture and creative initiatives were significant for the development of the shire's rural communities.
"Council's aim is to build long-term sustainability for arts/culture and creativity through appreciation of local culture, history and heritage, local people, assets and characteristics as well as positive attitudes and local entrepreneurship," Cr Hope said.
The consultative workshops will be held in Quirindi on Monday, May 27 at 4pm at the LPSC Council Chambers; Wednesday, May 29 at 4pm at Spring Ridge Community Hall; and Wednesday, May 29 at 7pm at Willow Tree's War Memorial Hall.
