Our Vision

Creativity is innate to humanity and is the wellspring of culture. We are all connected through arts and creativity.

Our arts are vital expressions of human experience. They embody individual and collective stories, histories, identities and help us understand what it means to be human. They connect us to our past and imagine our future.

Our First Nations cultures connect us to over 75,000 years of living culture and knowledge and the country on which we live.

The shared stories of millions of diverse peoples who now call Australia home promote mutual understanding and respect and connect us to a global community.

The technologies of the fourth industrial revolution are transforming and disrupting industries, economics, and how we interact with our world and each other. In this digital world connectivity and creativity are more important than ever - to our wellbeing, our future growth and prosperity.

In a creatively connected nation, creative enterprise is entrenched across society, industry and government as the fuel that ignites our social, cultural and economic success.
