Creativity Strategy

The City of Ryde is reviewing its current five-year Creativity Streategy and developing a new plan to help guide Council's work through to the year 2030. In early 2024, the community was invited to provide feedback for the Creativity Strategy 2025-2030. You can learn more about this consultation by visiting the Past Have Your Say page.

Council is now excited to invite the community to join our series of interactive workshops. These sessions will provide a forum for in-depth discussions where you can contribute to the direction of City of Ryde's cultural and creative landscape. Register now to secure your spot in one of our workshops sessions and enjoy light refreshments as we work together to create a vibrant future. Please click the link for more information.

The City of Ryde Creativity Strategy 2025-2030 will guide the strategic development of creativity through arts, culture, businesses, and built environment. It will provide a roadmap for embedding creativity into our communities’ everyday life.

The Strategy will consider existing and future challenges and opportunities and outline a shared vision for the communities and places. This future vision will be informed by a wide range of community members and groups, service providers, government agencies, peak bodies and organisations.

How you can take part

A range of community and stakeholder engagement activities will be held during January and February 2024. Community and key stakeholders are invited to contribute through the various activities when this engagement commences. Feedback received will inform the vision for future of creativity development in the City of Ryde and guide future activities, services and programs delivered by the community and Council.

What happens next

When all engagement activities have been completed, feedback will be reviewed, and an Engagement Outcome Report will be developed to inform the development of the draft Creativity Strategy 2025-2030.

The Draft Creativity Strategy 2025-2030 will then be on public exhibition for final public feedback and validation by the community and stakeholders. 

Creativity Strategy 2019-2024 (Current)

Creativity is part of everyday life in the City of Ryde. It is central to how we share our stories, connect with each other and celebrate our City. We express creativity through music, dance, theatre, visual arts and crafts, writing, media arts, film, food and more. Creativity will be an essential part of how we support our community as the City of Ryde grows and changes over the next five years. The City of Ryde Creativity Strategy 2019-2024 outlines a shared vision and strategic roadmap for this support.
