Help shape Broken Hill’s cultural story


Locals are invited to share their stories and ideas for the future of the city’s culture at a series of workshops, surveys, and activities to be hosted by Cred Consulting and Overton Creative next week.

Cred and Overton are currently working Council to develop a Cultural Plan for the delivery of cultural programs, services, and facilities in Broken Hill.

Representatives from both companies will be hosting a pop-up shop in Town Square (former Art Confessions store) to engage with the community between March 15-20, and an online survey is available until March 30.

Representatives will also be wandering the street to survey locals, stopping in for a drink and a chat at the Palace Hotel, and hosting a stall during the Perfect Light Film Festival.

Cred’s Associate Director, April McCabe, said she was looking forward to returning to Broken Hill and meet even more of the local community to have a chat about the Cultural Plan.

“During our last visit we met so many locals, heard great stories and got the inside word about what makes Broken Hill special. This trip, we want to build on those discussions through a series of engagement sessions with the community to help shape the final plan and we can’t wait,” said April.

“Broken Hill has so many great characters and stories, and an amazing history and culture that the local community has a deep pride about.

“We’ve planned a range of activities and events for people of all ages and we would love for people to pop down to the shop and have a chat, so hopefully there’s an opportunity for everyone to have their say on the future of the city’s culture.”

Due to Covid-19 restrictions we only have a limited number of spaces for each event, so please register early to avoid disappointment.

Those wishing to complete the online survey can do so here before March 30.
