Cultural Development

Hurstville City is enriched by the diversity of our community in terms of multiculturalism, religion, age, outlook and ability. Hurstville City Council is committed to improving residents' quality of life and wellbeing by acknowledging and celebrating the contributions individuals and groups make to our community.


The Hurstville City Council Community Arts and Cultural Development Strategy, provides a framework for Council’s commitment to the development of community wellbeing, social cohesion, and cultural vitality, using arts and cultural tools.

  • developing and presenting cultural activities
