A new Arts Plan is being developed by Arts SA to articulate a vision for arts and culture in this State and consultation is now open.
The consultants undertaking the draft Plan are seeking to:
- understand how the arts sector could be developed
- articulate the important role South Australian artists, organisations and institutions contribute to the state, national and international arts and cultural ecology
- help all South Australians access rich and diverse arts activities and experiences, wherever they live, and
- guide the South Australian Government’s support for arts and culture into the future.
Information about the consultation process can be found here.
As a result of a number of requests, Arts SA has extended its consultation to 12 April. The consultants are running a series of workshops in Mount Gambier (1 April), Port Augusta (2 April), Adelaide (3 April) and Port Adelaide (4 April). You can register here.
