In February 2019, Council endorsed the draft Art Strategy and Public Art Policy for public advertising.

Engagement Activities & Promotion

Copies of the draft Strategy and Policy were made available on the City's engagement platform, with users able to leave their feedback via an online form. The feedback form was promoted to subscribers to the Zig Zag Gallery email list, the City's social media platforms, at City events (such as the Corymbia Multicultural Festival and Morning Music) and one placement in the Echo Newspaper. The Arts Strategy received 38 responses, while the Public Art Policy received 22 responses (a total of 62). The majority of responses were favorable with 27/38 respondents supporting the implementation of an Arts Strategy.
