Logan City Council Arts, Culture and Heritage Strategy 2014-2017
Logan City Council's Arts, Culture and Heritage Strategy 2014-2017 (PDF 3517 KB) outlines a number of key areas where Council has worked towards developing more opportunities for the community and its arts workers to watch, learn, enjoy and participate in creative activities, enhancing lifestyle and business across the region. It guides the management of existing art, culture and heritage activities, sites and provision in Logan and helps in planning for future growth and development. Community consultation was essential to the strategy's development. You can read the outcomes of community consultation in the Arts, Culture and Heritage Strategy appendix (PDF 1255 KB).
Cultural Mapping Project
In 2011 arts practitioners and cultural organisations across Logan gave their thoughts on the arts and cultural activities currently on offer across the city. This feedback helped Council shape a revised Cultural Map of Logan. Find out what the community said by downloading Logan's Cultural Map (PDF 2118 KB).

Animating Spaces Logan: Arts in the park
Logan City participated in Animating Spaces Logan: Arts in the Park, an innovative, state-wide multi-arts project that revitalised and celebrated the Logan River Parklands through locally-driven arts activities and events.
Connecting Our Communities: Yarrabilba and Logan Village
Connecting our communities – Yarrabilba and Logan Village provides an opportunity to inject arts, culture and heritage into a new community and make connections to the existing skills and knowledge in an established one. Yarrabiliba is a rapidly growing new community, and Logan Village is the City of Logan's oldest town, renowned for its heritage and civic pride.
Logan Artworkers Networking Events (LANE)
Held every month, LANE gives artists from Logan and surrounding areas the opportunity to share thoughts on current projects, and discuss topics relevant to artists from broad artistic backgrounds.
Regional Arts Development Fund (RADF)
RADF provides opportunities for professional and emerging arts and cultural workers to develop their careers through project based funding. Visual artists, writer, performers, musicians, multimedia artists, and creative arts practitioners are invited to apply for RADF support for a wide variety of activities. Although preference is given to RADF applications from artists based in Logan, projects that provide benefit to the Logan community will also be considered.
RADF can provide funding assistance for individual professional development opportunities, community arts projects, projects that focus on the distinctive attributes of our area, and projects that form partnerships between artists and community organisations.
Visit the RADF page for more information.
