The new vision will map out how the State Government can best support the growth of WA's arts, culture, and creative industries over the next 10 years. It will build on the important work done in partnership with the sector to develop the current Strategic Directions 2016-2031 plan (Strategic Directions plan).
While the Strategic Directions plan contains valuable insights and aspirations for the sector in WA, the COVID-19 pandemic had significant, complex, and long-standing impacts on the sector locally, nationally, and globally. There is a need for an updated vision for the sector that reflects these changes in a global context and more clearly articulates the State Government's priorities for arts, culture and creative industries over the next 10 years.
DLGSC has created a discussion paper available on its website that reviews the milestones and achievements of the current Strategic Directions, and maps out the consultation process for the new 10 Year Vision.
DLGSC has engaged experienced arts and cultural consultant Kate Larsen to support development of the vision.
The first opportunity for sector input is now open via an introductory survey.
