Arts and Culture Strategic Action Plan

 

File No.: CP2015/22489

 

  

Purpose

1.       To provide the panel with an update post adoption of the Arts and Culture Strategic Action Plan as requested.

Executive Summary

2.       Auckland’s Arts and Culture Strategic Action Plan (the plan) was adopted on 8 October 2015 by the Regional Strategy and Policy Committee.

3.       Arts and culture play a key role in the cultural, social and economic life of Auckland, making it a more vibrant, inclusive and attractive place to live, work and visit. The plan recognises the contribution of pacific arts and culture to Auckland’s identity and vibrancy.

4.       It is a core strategy to deliver on the Auckland Plan strategic direction to integrate arts and culture into our everyday lives.

5.       The plan is important to enable council and the arts and culture sector to focus resources where it can make the most collective impact.  It will guide investment and provision of arts and culture across the Auckland region for the next 10 years.

6.       It has been developed through research, analysis, and extensive engagement with the arts and culture sector, Pacific artists and organisations, local boards, advisory panels, mana whenua and other stakeholders.

7.       The plan has 6 strategic goals and 15 objectives which focus on:

·    increasing participation for all Aucklanders

·    valuing and growing investment in arts and culture

·    ensuring there is infrastructure to meet Auckland’s growing, diverse needs

·    enhancing our place-making through arts and culture

·    celebrating Auckland’s unique cultural identity

·    building a robust and flourishing creative economy

 

8.       Staff  have worked with arts and culture stakeholders to develop an action plan (including priority actions) that sets out what the council and the sector will do to deliver on the goals and objectives.

9.       Local board views have helped shaped the plan and they will play an important role in supporting arts and culture at the local level.

10.     Advisory panels have provided advice and input into the development of the plan including imaging and content.

11.     Many actions in the plan are already underway. Funding new actions will be through reprioritising existing resources or new investment. In council’s case this will be subject to future annual plan and long-term plan processes.

12.     Progress on implementation will be reported annually to the governing body and arts and culture sector.

 

Recommendation/s

That the Pacific Peoples Advisory Panel:

a)      receive the report.

 

Comments

Background

 

13.     The Auckland Plan recognises that arts and culture are critical to achieving the vision of the world’s most liveable city. It dedicates Chapter 3 specifically to this, stating that:

Auckland expects that our arts and culture will thrive, unite, delight, challenge and entertain and also drive wealth and prosperity for individuals and for Auckland.

14.     The Arts and Culture Strategic Action Plan is a core strategy to give effect to this. While it will deliver on multiple outcomes and strategic directives in the Auckland Plan, the primary strategic intent is to integrate arts and culture into our everyday lives.

15.     Council has led the development of the plan working closely with the arts and culture sector, including a multi-agency project team and steering group.

Of these, 27 have been identified by the sector as priorities and will be the focus in the first three years (priority actions are shaded in the tables on pages 32-52 in the attached plan).

24.     The action plan identifies the key agencies responsible for funding or leading the delivery of the actions.

Consideration

Significance for the Pacific People’s Advisory Panel

25.     In section 4.1 of the Arts and Culture Strategic Action Plan, “Our People”,  Auckland is acknowledged as home to the largest Pacific populations in the world and the contribution of pacific arts and culture to Auckland’s identity and vibrancy is recognised.

26.     The text relating to Pacific peoples was suggested by the Pacific Peoples Panel after consultation on the draft.

27.     Pacific artists and pacific arts organisations attended the March 2015 stakeholder hui. They contributed to the formulation and prioritising of actions for delivering the plans goals and objectives.

28.     Celebrating Auckland’s many cultures and showcasing and engaging with diverse audiences is a focus of the plan.  There are a range of actions throughout the plan that seek to deliver on this focus.

29.     Examples of relevant actions to Pacific peoples in the plan are:

1.1.1

Support more opportunities for diverse communities to access and participate in arts and culture.

 

1.1.2

Provide more opportunities for children and young people to participate in arts and culture activities and facilities

1.1.3

Support arts and culture organisation and facilities to engage with Auckland’s diverse population in innovative ways

 

1.1.5

Support the provision of cultural activities in the Southern Initiative area.

 

1.1.6

3.3.1

Increase supply and access to affordable creative and maker spaces across Auckland

 

4.1.2

6.1.3

Support migrant entrepreneurship initiatives that leverage talent and international connections

 

6.1.4

Grow opportunities for the creative sector to access international markets including Asia Pacific for development, exchange and presentation

 

Local Board views and implications

30.     Local boards have been engaged in the development of the plan at various stages and their views have helped shape the plan.

31.     In September 2014 local boards responded positively to the draft plan with 18 of the 21 boards endorsing the strategic goals and objectives.

32.     Three boards did not specifically endorse it mainly due to concern at that time that the actions to implement the plan and the roles of each agency needed to be clearly articulated. These issues have now been addressed through the development of the action plan.

33.     Continued engagement with local boards on the action plan has been through briefings and workshops with local board members and portfolio holders.

34.     Local boards play a key role in supporting arts and culture in their communities. To increase awareness of this, boards have requested their arts and culture projects be captured in a separate schedule to the plan. This will be available online and include successful case studies.

Māori impact statement

35.     The strategic direction of the plan to integrate arts and culture into everyday life aligns well to a Māori world view where there is no delineation between art, culture and life.

36.     The Auckland Plan outcome that a ‘Māori identity that is Auckland’s point of difference in the world’ is a key focus in Goal 5. There are a range of supporting actions that seek to give effect to this aspiration. 

37.     It is expected that the plan will provide positive impacts for Māori through actions that include: 

·     growing Māori participation by promoting Māori art and culture in all forms including Māori events

·     establishing networks for Māori creative practitioners and supporting entrepreneurship and indigenous business development

·     promoting the visual and spoken use of  Te Reo Māori and growing marae as regional cultural hubs

38.     There is also a strong emphasis in the plan on increasing the visibility of Auckland’s unique Maori identity in the public realm through place-making projects and public art that reflect Maori stories, sites of significance and embrace Maori design principles.

39.     Engagement with Maori has occurred throughout the process. This included a number of hui with mana whenua and engagement with mataawaka through wānanga facilitated by Ngā Aho, a national network of Māori design professionals.

40.     The Independent Māori Statutory Board’s (IMSB) Māori Plan for Tāmaki Makaurau has been a guiding document underpinning the plan. The IMSB was represented on the project steering group and has provided guidance on both process and content. Māori art expertise was also represented.

41.     Mana whenua have indicated a desire to remain closely involved in ongoing implementation including having representation on the implementation oversight group.

Implementation

42.     The Arts and Culture Strategic Action Plan is an aspirational plan that will guide investment and provision of arts and culture over the next 10 years.

43.     It is a “whole of sector” plan which means that many different arts and culture stakeholders have a role in implementing actions, not just council.

44.     Many of the actions are already funded and underway.  Funding new actions will be through reprioritising existing resources or new investment. In council’s case funding decisions will be subject to future annual plan and long-term plan processes.

45.     An implementation framework is currently being developed which will provide more detail on who is involved in the delivery of actions, timeframes and high level measures.

46.     An implementation leadership group will be established with representatives from the sector, iwi and council to provide oversight on implementation.  Progress will be reported annually to the governing body and arts and culture sector.

47.     The implementation framework and annual reports will be available online to enable key stakeholders, lead agencies and contributors to engage with the plan on an ongoing basis.

48.     The document attached to this report is currently being designed for publishing. It will include a range of images to reflect the diversity of art and culture covered by the plan. It will also feature case studies that showcase each goal area.
