Arts 2025

The NSW Government is planning for the strategic future of the arts, screen and culture sectors in NSW, to guide the State’s investment through to 2025

In recognition of the role that the arts, screen and culture sectors play in creating thriving, dynamic and successful communities and the significant contribution they make to the social and economic wellbeing of the State, the NSW Government is developing a plan to guide the State’s future investment in arts, screen and culture: Arts 2025 Strategic Framework.

To inform the development of this Strategic Framework, a Summit was held on Friday 23 March 2018 at Carriageworks, bringing together delegates from all parts of the arts, screen and culture sectors in NSW.

The Arts 2025 Summit was an opportunity for stakeholders to contribute to planning for the future of arts, screen and culture, with delegates invited to provide feedback and ideas on five key strategic priorities:

  • Promoting NSW as a global destination and the creative capital of the Asia-Pacific
  • Improving access and participation in Western Sydney and regional NSW
  • Attracting alternative forms of funding
  • Prioritising investment and funding
  • Building opportunities for cross-government collaboration to achieve joint outcomes.

A Summary Report, which synthesises the comments and ideas shared at the Summit, is now available:

The Arts 2025 Summit was the beginning of a conversation about the future of arts, screen and culture in NSW.

Subsequent workshops and targeted conversations with the community and key stakeholders will further explore some of the ideas raised at the Summit. The outcomes from these discussions will also be published on this webpage.

If you have any feedback or comment in relation to these papers, please contact us through the Arts 2025 mailbox:

All ideas submitted via email will inform the development of the Arts 2025 Strategic Framework which is expected to be released later this year.
