BISI cultural planning document

'The BISIness of Creative Arts in Kiama' document outlines our cultural planning for the region.

The 'BISI' in BISIness stands for Build, Invest, Sustain, Integrate.

These four words represent our goals and our vision for cultural planning.

Council and the Cultural Board believe this document will support and encourage the creative role of all artists in the community:

  • literature
  • music
  • theatre
  • musical theatre and opera
  • dance
  • poetry
  • performance poetry
  • performing arts such as circus, comedy and puppetry
  • arts festivals
  • visual arts and crafts
  • arts education and training
  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander arts
  • community arts and cultural development
  • emerging and experimental arts.

Creative industries in Australia make economic and cultural contributions to their communities.

They are a valuable part of all communities.

We see community members and cultural groups as partners in the strategies set out in The BISIness of Creative Arts in Kiama.
