Arts Plan

South Australia’s reputation as an arts and culture centre is well-known around the world. The sector employs more than 16,000 people and is characterised by a rich diversity of practice and practitioners, unique and historic assets and facilities, world-renowned festivals and collections, and state-of-the-art creative industries.

The Marshall Government’s election commitment was to develop a new Arts Plan that will ensure that Arts funding in South Australia is driven by performance, artistic expression, collaboration and enterprise.

It will be the first arts plan developed in South Australia since 2000 and will introduce a fresh narrative about arts and culture throughout our state.
