Described as a ‘road map for the future’ for government, the arts sector, community and private enterprise, Strategic Directions 2016-2031 is Western Australia’s first long-term vision for the arts and culture sector.
The document was developed by advisory body the Arts Leadership Group (comprised of CEOs and directors-general from key government departments and industry and arts organisations including the Department of Culture and the Arts, Tourism WA, State Library of WA, WA Museum, Art Gallery of WA, ScreenWest, Perth International Arts Festival, and Chamber of Arts and Culture WA) in consultation with the sector.
Strategic Directions 2016-2031 was launched yesterday by Culture and the Arts Minister John Day, who said it outlined the Liberal National Government’s vision for the sector.
‘Its mission statement is clear – for WA to be the best place to live, work and play thanks to the contribution of its arts, culture and creative industries,’ he said.
‘We can look forward to a bigger and busier culture and arts sector that continuously creates new jobs and opportunities.
