Art in Glenorchy

In 2015 the Glenorchy City Council undertook an extensive consultation and planning process for the Designing Our Future 2015 – 2040 Community Plan. Through this process, arts and cultural development was identified as a key opportunity and priority by the Glenorchy Community.

Council’s Arts and Culture Program responds to a range of community needs through the development of special events, regular arts and cultural programing and ongoing community partnerships. The Arts and Culture Program is supported by the Council’s community based Glenorchy Arts and Culture Advisory Committee (GACAC). Find out more about GACAC at our GACAC page

The Arts and Culture Program has a major role in developing cultural events including the multicultural Moonah Taste of the World Festival, the annual Glenorchy Carols, and Symphony Under the Stars as well as smaller community based arts and cultural projects and public arts management and advice. The Arts and Culture team are based at the Moonah Arts Centre.
