Create NSW is the NSW Government's arts and cultural driver that brings together arts, screen and cultural functions in an integrated entity.
“Our vision and mission is focused on growing and supporting bold and exciting arts and culture that engages the community and reflects the state's rich diversity.”
At Create NSW we're committed to:
growing, empowering and strengthening the arts, screen and culture sectors in NSW
delivering new, innovative and exciting arts and cultural services and experiences for the people of NSW
embedding arts in the everyday.
This vision frames our functions and approach, as we work for the best possible outcomes for everyone in NSW.
The document Create in NSW outlines the NSW Government’s 10-year strategic policy framework from 2015-2025.
Through an evidence-based and outcomes approach we've worked to increase understanding of the value of arts and culture during the strategy period.
This has helped to competitively position our state to help attract investment, skilled talent and visitors.
The vision focuses on:
- increased access for audiences
- organisational strength
- artistic and business excellence across NSW.
At the heart of the vision is the understanding that arts and culture helps to build liveable communities and enhance individual well-being.
The strategy emphasises our work with regional NSW, Western Sydney, and support of Aboriginal arts and culture, and diverse communities.
