Abstract or Summary

This report from the Hamilton Arts Sector Reference Group (HASRG) seeks to support and enable the creative transformation of Hamilton by providing a snapshot of the city’s arts & culture sector as it is now, by identifying what’s currently missing, and by summarizing our collective views about what needs to be done next. With the objective of seeking to help fulfil the community’s expectations generated by the development of the new Creativity & Identity Strategy, this report provides: 1. an overview of Hamilton’s existing infrastructure, programmes and capacity 2. key gaps in the city’s current arts & culture sector 3. recommendations on how best to fill those gaps Whilst providing a current snapshot of Hamilton’s arts & culture sector in 2008, this report is also intended to provide a framework for future reporting of arts and culture activities in order to create a deeper understanding of Hamilton’s citywide arts & culture needs to help guide future planning and development. The Hamilton Arts Sector Reference Group (HASRG) is a cohesive, citywide, professional industry stakeholder group that takes a long-term strategic view of the development of arts & culture in Hamilton, New Zealand. HASRG has been meeting regularly since 2004 with the aim of promoting and nurturing participation in the arts & culture sector across the city. As a group of professionals, we believe it’s important for representatives from across our sector to be fully engaged with each other and work together for the long-term greater good of the city.
