Summit Called to Develop Arts 2025 Plan

The future growth of the arts and cultural sector in NSW will be the subject of a ground-breaking summit announced by Minister for the Arts Don Harwin.
Around 500 delegates from across the State – and from all sectors – will attend the Arts 2025 Summit, to be held at Carriageworks in Sydney on March 23.
The Summit will help inform the Government’s blueprint for the State’s future investment in arts, screen and culture through to 2025.
Mr Harwin said, “This is the first time in NSW that the arts, screen and cultural communities have come together on this scale. This will be a day of inspiration and ideas. It will have an emphasis on identifying opportunities to support excellence, participation and growth.
“The NSW Government recognises and values the profound effect that the sector has on our community, and is committed to growing and promoting a diverse, accessible and inclusive arts and cultural environment across the State.
“The blueprint to be developed at the Summit will consider ways to enrich and enliven communities and create better access through diverse arts, screen and cultural programs, products and services.
“The arts, screen and cultural sector is a powerful contributor to the economic growth of NSW and we have already shown our commitment to remain the premier creative and cultural State in Australia.”
The Summit will explore approaches to the promotion of NSW as a global creative destination; best practice funding models; sustainability and diversifying incomes streams; cross-government collaboration and social impact; and engagement with Western Sydney and regional NSW.
