Arts & Culture

About the SIG


This SIG operates as a forum to support Local Government arts management and development activities. Delegates from all Local Government authorities across Victoria are invited to participate in discussions on topics relevant to the arts and culture portfolios.

The group aims to meet four times a year. Some of the issues focused on include:

  • Sharing ideas, knowledge and achievements within and outside the SIG, for example with other SIGs and relevant stakeholders
  • Networking and exchanging ideas between Councils
  • Providing input and representation to other levels of government and industry on opportunities or challenges 
  • Establishing information on training opportunities
  • Contract management
  • Grant management
  • Art & heritage
  • Indigenous arts
  • Art participation
  • Public art and other matters as they arise

  Online community


This SIG is supported by an online community. We believe that accessing knowledge from individuals who work in a similar environment is invaluable and should never be underestimated. Our communities are only for people working in Local Government and there are many benefits to participating in them. They are a great way to keep in touch in between meetings, by asking your fellow SIG colleagues questions and sharing resources. You can also see who else is involved in the SIG and get in touch with them quickly.  Agendas, minutes, presentations and other SIG resources will also be posted on the online community.
