A NATIONAL CULTURAL POLICY TO 2020

The launch of the  National Cultural Policy web forum will allow all Australians to contribute to the development of a national cultural policy.

Launched by the Hon. Minister for the Arts  during  his speech to the National Press Club  on 27 October  this forum gives all  Australians an opportunity to help shape our cultural future.

The Hon. Peter Garrett AM identified three key themes for consideration:

  1. Keeping culture strong;
  2. Engaging the community; and,
  3. Powering the young.

These key points, along with other ideas, are expanded more fully in the forum’s  discussion framework.

This is not an exhaustive list.  The National Cultural Policy web forum is a place to share your thoughts – whether you are talking about cultural issues in your region or a grand national vision.

With your help, the Australian government will create a policy which celebrates and strengthens our culture.

Visit the forum and be part of the conversation at https://nationalculturalpolicy.com.au/
