How to have YourSay

Thank you to those that provided feedback to help inform a new ACT Arts Policy and a new ACT Arts Organisation Funding Model.

Input sought from individuals, businesses, community organisations, institutions and peak bodies will help inform these new policies.

The initial consultation period is now closed. Two separate surveys were open from Thursday 25 November to Thursday 23 December 2021. The first survey asked about the new ACT Arts Policy. The second survey asked about a new ACT Organisation Funding Model. A What We Heard report summarising the feedback received is now available in the document library.

Any personal information received will be used only for the purposes of this community engagement process. Names of organisations may be included in any subsequent consultation report, but all individuals will be deidentified unless prior approval is gained. Please review the YourSay privacy policy for more information.

We are looking at

On 1 October 2021 the ACT Government released a Statement of Ambition for the Arts 2021-2026. The ambition is for Canberra to become recognised as Australia’s Arts Capital through three strategies:

  1. CREATE amazing art and culture—everywhere, at any time, for everyone.
  2. DEVELOP arts, cultural and creative industry, practice, and facilities—supporting creation and culture at all levels, via any path.
  3. PROMOTE our arts and culture—to attract artists and creators, arts workers, visitors and investment.
This Statement of Ambition and the strategies will inform:
  • A new ACT Arts Policy; and
  • A new ACT Arts Organisation Funding model.

The new ACT Arts Policy

The new ACT Arts Policy will be informed by research and developed in partnership with the ACT arts community over the coming months. The policy will include steps, decisions and actions for the government to take to deliver the strategies outlines in the ambition. The current ACT Arts Policy (2015) can be found in the document library.


The new ACT Arts Organisation Funding Model
The new ACT Arts Organisation Funding Model will have a focus on transparency and accountability and will also be developed in partnership with the ACT arts community over the coming months, in line with the new ACT Arts Policy.

We will use your views to

Your feedback will be used to inform the development of a draft ACT Arts Policy and ACT Arts Organisation Funding Model. Further engagement, including workshops with key stakeholders, will take place in early 2022.
