The community has until February 21 to lodge feedback on the draft plan for the Glasshouse.
The draft covers the next two years.
Port Macquarie-Hastings Council says the Glasshouse, which opened in 2009, has so far attracted over two million visitors and plays a significant role in the lives of locals and visitors.
Council estimates the facility contributes some $31.3m to the local economy each year.
Council is currently inviting community feedback on a draft plan that aims to build on the previous success of the venue, and sets the strategic direction for the Glasshouse in alignment with council's cultural plan 2018 - 2021.
Director Rebecca Olsen said council is committed to ensuring arts, heritage and culture play a strong role in the development of our region's future, identity and sense of place.
"We are so lucky to have a local facility that is the envy of other regional cities, and one that will continue to be a key centre for cultural, community and commercial activities on the NSW Mid North Coast," Ms Olsen said.
"There would be very few of us that have not visited the Glasshouse, and the venue has bought us many wonderful cultural experiences such as the Archibald Prize, the Australian Ballet, Opera Australia, Bell Shakespeare and more.
"It has also hosted IRONMAN Australia, trade expos and provided an exceptional performance experience for local school concerts and performances... and of course is the home of our visitor information centre," Ms Olsen said.
The draft Glasshouse Plan 2020 - 2022 focuses on three key outcome areas:
- Enhancing utilisation, visitation and participation;
- Developing successful partnerships; and
- Promoting viability and ensuring good governance.
"We look forward to the Glasshouse continuing to go from strength to strength and enriching our cultural lives and local economy, and whether you a regular Glasshouse visitor or not, we really encourage our entire community to 'have your say'," Ms Olsen added.
The draft Glasshouse Plan 2020 - 2022 is open for feedback until Friday February 21, 2020 and is available to view at council's website by searching have your say and at council's offices in Laurieton, Port Macquarie and Wauchope.
