Australia Council develops new Strategic Plan

5 Sep



The Australia Council for the Art’s Strategic Plan articulates their leadership role in building a vibrant arts ecology by fostering excellence and increasing national and international engagement with Australian art and artists. The development of the 2014 – 2019 Strategic Plan will set out the vision for the cultural sector under this new act.

It responds to the new legislation and is informed by sector and nationwide consultation. The consultation began with the Australia Council Review, which provided a strong foundation for the plan. Australia Council staff, peers, State and Territory arts and cultural agencies were also consulted during the planning process.

They are focusing on the following goals:

  • Australian arts are without borders
  • Australia is known for its great art and artists
  • The arts enrich daily life for all
  • Australians cherish aboriginal and Torres strait islander arts and cultures
