Explore social cohesion, mental health and wellbeing, economic recovery and more
Over three nights we engaged with experts exploring social cohesion, mental health and wellbeing, economic recovery and more, in our new series In Conversation with the Australia Council series.
Georgie Harman, CEO, Beyond Blue and Adrian Collette AM discuss the arts and the mental health sectors' joint goals in episode 2, sharing examples of how working collaboratively can help to meet major challenges regarding ageing, loneliness, long term conditions and mental health.
Join Shane Fitzsimmons and Lydia Miller in episode 3 as they examine how in rebuilding, recovery and resilience, creativity can connect us and help us ensure our nation’s future success. One year on from the devastating 2019-20 Australian bushfires, and amid the continuing challenge of the global pandemic, arts and creativity have been crucial to the recovery of our communities.

Creating Our Future: Results of the National Arts Participation Survey
Creating Our Future: Results of the National Arts Participation Survey is the fourth study in the landmark research series that explores Australians’ engagement with and attitudes towards the arts.
The National Arts Participation Survey asks how Australians are engaging with arts and creativity in our daily lives. How do Australians feel about arts and creativity? How is our arts engagement changing? Do we recognise the impacts of arts and creativity in our lives and communities? How do Australians feel about public funding for the arts?
