AUSTRALIAN CULTURAL POLICY: THE NEXT DECADE
A ONE DAY SYMPOSIUM ON THE FUTURE OF AUSTRALIAN CULTURE
MONDAY 8 APRIL 2019
ISABELLA FRASER ROOM, STATE LIBRARY OF VICTORIA

Australia’s cultural and creative industries are a $111 billion sector and employ 399,000 workers nationally. Cultural symbols lie at the heart of what it means to be Australian. Yet the Commonwealth government has no formal national policy for this sector. Monash University’s Masters of Cultural and Creative Industries and the National Association for the Visual Arts invite you to a one-day symposium to discuss the future of Australian cultural policy. What are the pressing challenges facing the sector? What are the opportunities? And how could policymakers address them? The symposium brings together leaders from the cultural industries, federal politics, higher education and the arts for a one day discussion charting a road map for the next term of government.

Topics include:

  • Current state of the industries

  • Cultural regulation

  • Cultural labour markets

  • Tech, data and culture

  • Cultural funding Policy roadmap for the new decade
