Role of the board

The board’s role is to:

  • guide, promote and help build the identity of the Sunshine Coast as an arts destination for tourism and industry
  • advocate the region’s advantages to secure new investment in arts and cultural infrastructure
  • provide strategic advice to Council in relation to arts and cultural facilities and infrastructure
  • provide advice on strategic direction of wider cultural policy and strategy
  • provide opportunities to develop philanthropic activity in relation to the regional arts offer.

Board members

The members of the board have a diverse range of skills, expertise and creative insight in strategic planning and the development of cultural policy.

The first priority for the board is to develop a framework for the development of a strategic, 20 year Regional Arts and Cultural Plan including a vision for the region’s cultural future.
