From the Office

Dear colleagues, 

This week the CDN team meet with colleagues from across Australia (capital city Arts and Culture Managers, local government association policy staff, the Australia Local Government Association, the Australia Council and the Federal Ministry for the Arts) in Hobart at the fifth meeting of the National Local Government Cultural Forum. This meeting will progress projects currently already underway including cultural data for local government and integrated planning across government spheres. Visit  CDN's website for the latest updates.

The Victorian Local Government Multicultural Issues Network (VLGMin) Forum Report 2014 is now available from the CDN website.  Enhancing Cultural Wellbeing and Cultural Citizenship Through the Arts was presented by the Victorian Local Government Multicultural Issues Network with the Municipal Association of Victoria, the Cultural Development Network and Multicultural Arts Victoria, and hosted by City of Ballarat and supported by City of Melbourne, City of Greater Dandenong, City of Monash and Brimbank City Council.  Acclaimed author Arnold Zable opened the Forum by exploring the role of story and the arts in nurturing an inclusive, democratic society; based on local communities attuned to their diversity and the multitude of stories contained within them. The program included a series of insightful breakout sessions led by researchers and local government and arts organisation professionals; looking into the how the arts can contribute to the development and delivery of policies which address Australian multicultural realities. Read the report here.

Work is continuing on our survey of Victorian councils' cultural development practices and cultural infrastructure. This is a result of requests from councils at our Cultural Planning Forums for benchmarking information across the state. Information will be gathered over the next month and a report will be available soon.

March is filled with many cultural development activities and new publications which you can read about in this e-bulletin. This month's Pick of the Month resources are three reports by the US National Endowment for the Arts. These reveal new findings about the impact of arts and cultural industries on GDP, as well as how and why Americans participate in certain arts activities. The data for the three reports is all from 2012, so for the NEA can show a comprehensive view of a single year in the life of the arts and cultural sector from three different angles: supply, demand, and motivations for consumer behavior. See the 'Resources' section for more detailed information.

CDN welcomes the the news of Stefanie Vianello's appointment as the new General Manager of Creating Australia and we look forward to working with her.

Regards from the CDN team: John Smithies, Kim Dunphy, Lyndall Metzke, Leda Yazgin and Yuji Weisgard.

Cultural Development Network's activities

Save the date: Professional development forum: Cultural Development Planning in Local Government, 
9.30-4.30 pm, Thursday May 7, Municipal Association of Victoria, 80 Collins St, Melbourne

This forum follows last year’s series on cultural development planning that involved 75 staff and elected representatives from 50 Victorian councils.  This event will function as a refresher for those who attended the series. Those who did not attend will also be welcome, but will be required to do pre-forum reading and on-line training.

The forum will assist in the development of shared processes and standards in the cultural development sector across the whole of Victoria.  It offers local government cultural development workers skill development in cultural planning, and the chance to share expertise and experience.  A ‘theory of change’ focus encourages a deep examination of outcomes that are sought and methods to determine how these are achieved. The format will include presentations, group discussion, case studies and information about resources. New resources developed by CDN since the series last year will be provided to participants.

Program details available from soon from

Resources on CDN's website about cultural development planning in local government
Several products presented at this year's forum series on cultural development planning are now available from CDN's website.  A report on cultural data provides an overview of datasets that may be relevant and useful to cultural development planners in local government across Australia.  A focus has been given to datasets available at local government level, as well as those that may be useful even if they are only available at state and national levels. An updated annotated bibliography on evaluation resources is also available.

Local government research project:  Culturizing Sustainable Cities:
Call for case studies

How can artistic/cultural practices be embedded within the planning and development of more sustainable cities?
CDN is collaborating with international colleagues on a research project entitled Culturizing Sustainable Cities. Lead researcher Nancy Duxbury from the University of Coimbra, Portugal, is searching for examples,
from anywhere in the world, of two types of initiatives: (1) Development / implementation of policy and other actions of local authorities to integrate culture into local sustainable city planning and public policies, and to support art-environment activities; and (2) Local artistic/heritage/cultural activities involving local residents that help connect people to the environment and develop more sustainable living practices. In Phase 1, we will develop an online collection of profiles and case studies (globally distributed) selected from these examples. In Phase 2, two locations where clusters of cultural-environmental activities or major policy/planning innovations are identified will be examined in-depth.

We encourage Australian councils to offer their work as case studies. For more information and submission of case studies visit this website.
