Abstract:

Proposals for a National Arts, Culture and Creativity Plan be developed to supercharge Australia’s creative industry’s recovery from Covid-19.
This paper, the first in the new Analysis series, unpacks what a National Arts, Culture and Creativity Plan could look like, and how it could be developed, by exploring a number of existing Australian 2030 plans. They look at what’s included, what processes brought them into existence, and what they have in common, with the core goal of then applying those learnings to the development of a NACC Plan. They then provide some suggestions for the possible scope, as well as the next steps for an Australian NACC Plan 2030, imagining a constructive and efficient way forward for a rich cultural life for the nation.
A National Arts, Culture and Creativity Plan (NACC Plan) is a practical way for the Federal Government to facilitate more coherent and effective public and private investments across these industries, as well as legislative, regulatory and policy settings. A NACC Plan will assist with the cultural and creative industries’ recovery, while supporting employment and economic growth. This aligns to the priorities of the National Cabinet and the measures announced in the Commonwealth Budget.

Arts and culture are a key part of creating moments and places that bring people together: great places to live, work, visit and do business. The cultural and creative industries, institutions and individuals are important in terms of their contribution to the economic footprint and employment. They spur innovation across the economy, as well as contributing to numerous channels for positive social impact such as well-being and health, education, inclusion, urban regeneration and many others.

The cultural and creative industries are among the hardest hit by the pandemic. While all Australian governments have provided support, a coordinated approach is required to assist with the cultural and creative industries.
