August 2023 Arts and heritage in Southland - Online community survey

Submissions closed on 18 August 2023.


Southland District Council is developing an arts and heritage strategy to recognise the value of our local arts and heritage assets and services as part of our social and cultural wellbeings.

The strategy will be all about people, communities and organisations collaborating to improve local well-being and quality of life and making sure that plans, strategies, priorities and programmes at all levels are integrated.

One of its key outcomes is identifying options for how arts and heritage services can be managed, prioritised and funded in Southland District. One of the first steps in the development of the strategy was a survey to find out what is already happening in Southland District and what part arts and heritage plays in our residents’ lives.
