Mansfield Performing Arts Centre's Stratgic Development Plan Next Steps
Friday, 18 September, 2020 - 12:15
Mansfield Shire Council will work with the Mansfield Performing Arts Centre’s Committee of Management to determine how the committee will progress the Centre’s Strategic Development Plan.
Mansfield Shire CEO, Kaylene Conrick said the Strategic Development Plan was presented at this week’s Council meeting.
“The Plan is an important step in understanding what’s required for the long-term sustainability of the facility and how all the partners can make informed decisions on future management. It outlines opportunities for creative participation, encouraging more community and civic use, supporting community connections and the importance of appropriate governance,” Ms Conrick said.
“The Plan provides a vision we can all get behind; for the Centre to be a creative hub that strengthens our community through access to, participation in and engagement with a diverse range of community and cultural events,” she said.
To realise this vision the partners; Council and the Mansfield Secondary College, will first review the Joint User Agreement and determine next steps in moving to a new governance structure.
“The Plan contains some exciting ideas and the governance arrangements need to be resolved before work can progress on implementing these.
Council formally appointed Ms Conrick and its Community Development Officer to the Committee of Management.
