Creative Communities is the state’s Arts, Culture and Creative Industries Policy, recognising the unique place of the sector in NSW.

Creative Communities is an inclusive policy that puts culture, arts, and the creative industries at the heart of NSW. It provides a framework for the next 10 years that supports artists, creatives and cultural organisations and expands to include the rapidly growing creative industries.
