The arts and culture are essential to a vibrant and creative Maroondah.

Our city owes much to its many cultural strengths, its active and creative community and its popular and successful arts facilities, programs and events.

The Maroondah Arts Advisory Committee provides knowledge and advice to Council to assist in realising the community’s vision for its creative future, as outlined in key strategies and policies including Maroondah 2040 and the Maroondah Arts and Cultural Development Strategy.

In particular the Committee:

  • advises on approvals such as public art commissions and other acquisitions for the Maroondah City Council Art Collection
  • promotes integration across other committees and advisory groups of Council including for example Maroondah Disability Advisory Committee, Maroondah Community Safety Committee and Maroondah Business Advisory Committee.  


The membership of the Committee comprises three Councillors and between ten and twelve community/industry representatives who live, work or who have expertise relevant to the arts and cultural development in Maroondah.
