Love Your Local is a practical guide for artists, arts workers and organisations to working with Local Government Authorities (LGAs) to achieve creative and professional development goals and deliver on local council policy drivers.

LGAs are among the strongest champions of the arts in Australia – and there are mutual benefits for artists collaborating with councils.

The toolkit explores the many different ways that artists can build win-win collaborations with LGAs, from grants and studio space to professional development, marketing and brokering relationships with businesses. It also advises on what councils need from artists and arts workers in return so they can deliver value to the communities they represent.
