Community members across the Toowoomba Region are invited to join workshops which will shape Toowoomba Regional Council’s (TRC) new Arts and Cultural Strategy.

TRC Library and Cultural Services portfolio leader Cr Tim McMahon said the Toowoomba Region was a hive of cultural activity in the arts, heritage and multicultural sectors.

“We have so many wonderful organisations, initiatives, festivals and events which Council supports. This strategy is aimed to help these to continue to flourish and help formalise Council’s delivery of services or assistance," Cr McMahon said. 

A series of workshops will be held in towns across the Region, with participants asked to consider key items of the strategy and help create a document that will strengthen the working relationships with Council and other community organisations.

“We have so much activity in our community that occurs due to the passion, skill and commitment of our diverse community – organisations and individuals who give their all in creating anything from a gallery show, to large festivals or the quiet work of preserving our local history throughout the Region,” Cr McMahon said.

“It is vital that this working document is informed by the knowledge and wealth of experience of those whom this strategy will ultimately serve.”

Dates and locations of the workshops are available via Council Your Say page , by calling 131 872 or emailing 

The workshops will be held in the evening and light catering will be available.

Registrations are encouraged, but not compulsory.
