At a time like this, it is more critical than ever that we have evidence-based discussions about how we ensure that arts, culture and creativity are fully utilised in Australia’s wellbeing and economic agenda.

ANA’s Insight series provides independent research and analysis to inform conversations between government, private investors and industry who are working in partnership for a rich cultural future. Now is the time to take an evidence-led 21st century approach to our cultural and creative economy, unleashing the opportunities and advantages it can provide to all Australians.

ANA was established in 2018 with a $1.65 million commitment by The Myer Foundation, the Tim Fairfax Family Foundation and the Keir Foundation. The Australian Academy of the Humanities was the lead delivery partner for the initiative for the period 2018-2020, and many of the publications displayed on this page were produced during that period.
