Twenty-first century priorities for Australian arts and culture policy: What's new? What's endured? What's next?
This Analysis Paper explores what Australians believe about arts and culture and what they expect from their national leaders in this space. We summarise the emerging trends as well as foundational principles that should inform the ambitious and bold national settings that Australia needs for a truly 21st century approach to arts and culture. Informed by these foundations and trends, this paper also outlines the priorities for change, to ensure all Australians have opportunities to participate in and benefit from a vibrant cultural life.
Imagining 2030: Preparing for a National Arts, Culture and Creativity Plan
ANA’s first Analysis paper, Imagining 2030, unpacks what a National Arts, Culture and Creativity Plan could look like, and how it could be developed, by exploring a number of existing Australian 2030 plans. We look at what they include, what processes brought them into existence, and what they have in common, so that those learnings can be applied to the development of a National Arts, Culture and Creativity Plan in the future.
