The Cultural Compass is a tool for decision makers to consider the impact of any decision on culture.
Culture is intangible - which means it can be difficult to fully understand and consider in the context of complex decisions.
The Cultural Compass was developed originally to support Elected Municipal Officials to consider the impact of their decisions on culture, as the decisions made by municipalities often impact significantly and sometimes negatively on the creative and cultural life of residents and businesses.
The tool presents questions for decision makers to consider the impact of decisions on values, peoples sense of connection to each other, place and nature, interaction, 'the vibe' of places and cultural resilience.
Any decision makers - particularly Elected Members/ Politicians, Municipal Leaders, Policy makers, Systems designers, Place consultants, Property developers
A few minutes - at a glance.
For individual contemplation or teams - such as Elected Member bodies
Ideally - one compass per participant.
Basic knowledge of arts, culture and place is helpful - but the magic is in the participants engagement with the questions and the emerging discussion.
Inspired through contributing to the Cultural Impact Guide developed by the South Australian Creative Communities Network with the support of the Local Government Association in South Australia.
