Cultural Impact Framework

City of Marion was a partner with four other Councils in a Statewide pilot project, developed by the Creative Communities Network of SA, partnered with Arts South Australia and the LGA R&D Scheme. “The Cultural Impact Framework and toolkit”, can be used to measure the value of cultural activities and better understand how decisions made by Councils impact on the culture of a community.

A summary of the Framework, The Cultural Impact Guide” is intended as a set of provocations to consider the impact of any decision on culture.
