A Liberal National Coalition Government will introduce a City of Culture initiative which will showcase cultural highlights from across regional and suburban Victoria.

This initiative will include a strong investment from the government in Victoria’s regional and suburban areas.

Under this program, councils will be able to apply for grants to promote their municipalities and Victoria’s cultural aspects.

For six months at a time, a major tourism push, with the City of Culture as its centrepiece, will be directed at a particular municipality of Victoria.

Each year a metropolitan and a rural city or suburb will be selected.

Being a nominated Victorian City of Culture, will generate cultural, social and economic benefits and help foster urban regeneration and jobs growth. It will offer unprecedented opportunity to act as a catalyst for area-wide change.

The focus will be on a multitude of cultural events such as the arts, theatre, writing, food, wine, travel, film, gardens and music.

The total funding commitment will be $2 million over 4 years.

Quotes attributable to Shadow Minister for Tourism and Major Events, Heidi Victoria:

“The Liberal Nationals City of Culture initiative will showcase the very best of our cultural highlights. These grants will go a long way to promoting the best of what all of Victoria has to offer, not just what is in Melbourne.

It will not only provide fantastic entertainment for tourists and locals, but it will provide a boost for those regional cities and suburbs that host this festival.

I am tremendously excited to be announcing this new investment into Victoria’s regions.”
