The City has developed distinct themes for each Cultural District based on the unique identity, heritage and changing community interests of these neighbourhoods. The themes will help to frame the narratives built through placemaking projects, marketing and outreach efforts and strengthen sense of place in the Cultural Districts. Themes were developed through consultation with City staff, local Councillors and BIAs.
Please see below an overview of the key ideas and existing neighbourhood assets that informed District-specific themes and the Cultural Districts boundaries.
