Arts Nation: An Overview of Australian Arts is a new report which provides evidence as a catalyst for informed discussion about arts and culture in Australia. It will be an evolving report which fills a critical gap by creating and interpreting a set of national indicators to increase our understanding of the Australian arts industry.
The Australia Council is committed to strengthening the evidence base for understanding key issues in the Australian arts sector.
Our research and analysis is a critical part of how we seek to inform policy development and public dialogue about arts and culture. This is achieved through data analysis, in-depth research projects, and evaluation of Council activities.
