Creative Communities brings welcome focus to NSW cultural and creative potential

The NSW Government’s arts, culture and creative industries policy, Creative Communities, is welcome recognition of the vital contribution of our cultural and creative industries to the State’s economic, social and cultural well-being.

Live Performance Australia (LPA) applauds the Minns Government for bringing a strong whole of government focus to the sustainable growth of the creative industries in NSW, including the performing arts, contemporary music and festivals.

LPA Chief Executive, Evelyn Richardson, said: ‘As home to many of our world-class performing arts organisations and companies, venues and festivals, we are encouraged by the recognition of the powerful contribution our cultural and creative industries make to NSW and their future potential.’
This long-term policy framework will help to reshape the way government makes decisions which impact arts, culture and the creative industries, including future public investment or partnerships with the private sector.
‘In implementing the policy, it will be vitally important to sustain and strengthen our existing cultural infrastructure and assets while identifying new opportunities for development and growth,’ Ms Richardson said.

LPA welcomes the Government’s commitment to investing in the people, places and programs which will drive the policy goals.

‘There is clearly a lot of work to be done in developing and delivering the detail of the policy which will also require new investment.

‘We look forward to working with the Minister for Arts, Music and the Night-time Economy, John Graham, and his colleagues across government in realising the vision behind Creative Communities,” Ms Richardson said.
