Report from third meeting: March 19, 2014 in Brisbane, Queensland
The Cultural Forum is a meeting of cultural policy and planning representatives from Australia’s capital cities, local government associations along with Commonwealth Ministry for the Arts and the Australia Council for the Arts.
The third meeting considered progress on the priority areas agreed to in previous meetings in relation to its Terms of Reference that begins with the objective to increase the capacity of local government to strengthen the arts and cultural development in their communities.

The Culture and Community Researchers’ Network was a partnership between CDN and Victorian College of the Art and Music’s Centre for Cultural Partnerships. It brought together researchers from universities in Australia and other countries who were interested in cultural development, social change, creative methodologies, artistic intervention, and/ or community research themes. In 2013, a new program is being led by VCA-MCM’s Centre for Cultural Partnerships: Social Practice in the Arts Seminar Series.
