In 2019–20, as a nation, we have found ourselves navigating challenging days with ingenuity and great goodwill but with uncertainty about what lays ahead. Through the devastating bushfire crisis and our enforced separation during the COVID-19 pandemic, artists have connected and inspired us. 

Artists, writers, musicians and creators will also interpret our 'dark times' for years to come, ensuring we emerge from this crisis more connected, with a deeper understanding of each other’s stories, than when we went in. 

We also celebrate the strength and breadth of activity delivered by the cultural sector in 2019–20, including all the wonderful performances and exhibitions, and regional, national and international tours delivered to Australian and global audiences before COVID-19.

The Australia Council 2019-2020 Annual Report is out now.
