Council Seeks Feedback On Arts

Published: Tue 21 Nov 2000 04:43 PM
The arts can provide the city with social, cultural and economic development, says the Christchurch City Council's draft arts policy and strategy.
The draft also says the arts can be a vehicle for urban renewal and city marketing.
It has been drawn up after lengthy discussions with arts organisations and artists and now the City Council wants public feedback on the draft. It identifies outcomes the Council wants to achieve and the strategy provides the direction and plan for the way the Council will work towards those outcomes, says Olivia Papuni of the Council's Social Policy Team.
The strategy aims to support the development of local artists, generate new employment opportunities, develop opportunities for arts expression and improve the built environment that will be left for future generations.
The draft says the Council recognises the arts contribute to good personal health, high self-esteem and positive self-image.
Also arts contribute to the reduction of anti-social behaviour and helps to build strong families and healthy communities.
Further, the arts can generate economic wealth and contribute to other industries, such as tourism and trade.
The Council wants public feedback by Monday 18 December and copies of the draft arts policy and strategy can be obtained by phone, fax or email: Maria Leuluai, Leisure Unit; phone: 3722 422; fax 3711 267; or email: Maria. Leuluai@ccc.govt.nz.
