Throughout July until early September 2023, the NSW Government called on artists and other creative industries practitioners across the state to help craft the first-ever Arts, Culture and Creative Industries Policy for NSW.

A new discussion paper, A New Look At Culture, guided the consultation. The focus of the consultation was on how to grow the Arts and Cultural sector – an employer of almost 1 in 10 people in Greater Sydney – in a way that is led by the people involved in the arts and creative industries.
