Direction Five - Enhancing the experiences and opportunities for Culture, Arts and Sporting community

Overview:

Located 260km to the south-west of Melbourne, Warrnambool has a thriving arts, sporting and creative community.  Supporting the Warrnambool community to build social and cultural connections and a stronger understanding of China links strategically with the Victorian Government’s engagement strategy for China, Partnerships for Prosperity. The vision for the state is that “Victoria becomes China’s gateway to Australia based on the strength of our connections and the depth of our understanding of each other’s people”.  
 
The direction and actions set out below aim to encourage connections between China and those within Warrnambool’s arts, sporting and creative community.
