Arts and Culture

Ours is a culturally rich and diverse community. We recognise the important role that arts and culture play in the creation of distinctive, connected, inclusive and culturally engaged communities.

Our City is home to a significant number of artists, galleries, studios, museums, organisations and events; including Vitalstatistix,  Mixed Creative, Kurruru Youth Performing Arts, Port Adelaide Artists Forum, Port Community Arts Centre, Semaphore Music Festival, Twilight Christmas Parade, SA Maritime Museum, National Railway Museum and SA Aviation Museum.

Council's City Plan 2030 states that we are committed to developing “a city where people love to be”. We have also recently endorsed our Arts and Culture Strategy (PDF, 9526.49 KB)
