The State’s first Arts, Culture and Creative Industries Policy

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. The discussion process aimed to understand what’s working, what’s not working and what fresh ideas will propel the sector forward.
