Bass Coast is home to a thriving arts community. The beauty of its natural environment, and the close proximity to Melbourne, attracts the creative spirit.

What are Council's plans for arts and culture in the area?

The Arts and Culture Plan 2015-2019 (PDF 415kb) builds on the achievements of the previous Plan which ran from 2007-2013. It sets out actions that encourage our community to nurture, value and support arts and cultural activities as an intrinsic part of our lives and our environment.
