Purpose:

The purpose of the KAAC is to provide information and advice about current and emerging arts related matters to City of Kalamunda Council for the purpose of decision-making and planning.

The City of Kalamunda recognises that the Arts contribute to the overall well-being, liveability and economy of our community. Incorporating arts into planning and urban design provides an opportunity to deliver a cohesive vision and celebrate the City’s rich heritage and contemporary Arts practise.

The Committee will provide advice on engagement with the Arts community and will also advise Council on matters regarding policy, strategic planning, integration and implementation of City initiatives.

The Committee will help identify much of the work required that will inform the development of recommendations to Council to enable informed decision-making.

Objective:
  • Reference and maintain the Arts Vision for the City to provide a cohesive creative direction and appropriate themes for all planning and development initiatives that are in line with the City’s Arts’ Masterplan.
  • Review City Master Plans and make recommendations that draw on the City’s Arts Strategy and best contemporary practise.
