What we do
Create NSW is the NSW Government’s arts and cultural driver, which brings together arts, screen and culture functions in an integrated entity, and includes cultural infrastructure.
Create NSW, led by Deputy Secretary, Ms Alex O’Mara, sits within the Department of Planning and Environment, and is responsible for furthering Government’s vision for NSW to be known for its bold and exciting arts and culture that engages the community, supports innovation, facilitates economic development, and reflects the state’s rich diversity.
Create NSW invests in the success and future of arts, screen and culture in NSW through infrastructure, funding programs, partnerships and advocacy.
We are committed to growing, empowering and strengthening the arts, screen and culture sectors in NSW, to embed arts in the everyday and deliver new, innovative and exciting arts and cultural services, infrastructure and experiences for the people of NSW.
Create NSW also provides secretariat and administrative support to the Arts & Culture Advisory Committee, a high-level advisory committee established to work with Government to help shape policy direction to grow and promote arts and culture across all of NSW.
Create NSW works to achieve the NSW Government’s strategic objectives to develop and sustain the arts, culture and screen sectors, which are built upon the ambitions of excellence, access and strength, and which reflect and support the diverse communities across NSW.
