Lake Macquarie City Council is hosting an online survey seeking feedback from "creatives" in Lake Macquarie to identify opportunities, gaps and changes in the industry.

Council's arts, culture and tourism manager Jacqui Hemsley said Lake Macquarie was committed to supporting and nurturing a vibrant and talented creative community.

"It's been two years since the adoption of the Lake Macquarie Arts, Heritage and Cultural Plan and we are interested to find out what shifts have occurred in the sector during this time," Ms Hemsley said.

"The creative industry contributes more than $376m to the Lake Macquarie economy and employees 1,575 people.

"We would like to find out from people in the creative industry if we are on track to achieving our vision for a vibrant, contemporary and cosmopolitan city that actively celebrates, promotes and values the arts, heritage, culture and diversity of our community.

"We encourage anyone involved in the industry to share their thoughts on opportunities available to them in Lake Macquarie."

The survey can be completed online.
