NSW needs an inclusive, sustainable and ambitious approach to arts and culture. The Federal Government's National Cultural Policy Revive, provides an ideal starting point.

We are calling on artists, creative industry practitioners, musicians, organisations and community members to contribute their insights and ideas to inform a new policy.

We want you to share your valuable insights, experiences and big ideas to inform the first-ever integrated arts, culture and creative industries policy for NSW.

Your feedback will help develop innovative solutions and address challenges to foster growth in the arts and cultural sector.

This is your chance to share your input to propel the sector forward.

Tell us what you think

We have prepared a discussion paper and you can join the conversation by:

  • providing a written, audio or video submission;
  • registering to attend one of the many in-person or virtual town hall discussions across Greater Sydney and regional NSW; and
  • sharing your idea about how we can grow the arts, culture and creative industries.

To have your say, complete as many of the activities by 8 September 2023.

Privacy collection notice

Have your say consultations are run by the NSW Department of Customer Service (McKell Building, 2-4 Rawson Place, Haymarket NSW 2000).

We are interested in hearing from the community and will use the information we collect from you to help develop the programs and services that NSW Government provides.

We are collecting only minimal personal information from you. We may collect basic information like your name and contact details, if you choose to provide them. You may provide some personal information in response to questions that we ask you. For example, we may ask you about your experiences or opinions about a particular topic.

Having your say is voluntary and you are not legally required to provide any personal information to us. For some consultations, though, you will not be able to have your say unless you agree to include your personal information.

If you do provide personal information to us, you have a right to access it, and can ask us to correct it if it is wrong.

We may share personal information you provide with other parts of the Department of Customer Service (for example, with our Data Analytics Centre) so that we can conduct analysis across all consultations and refine our engagement methodology.

Where we conduct a consultation with or on behalf of a partner agency, we would usually share the information that we collect with that agency. In this instance, we are running this consultation with:

  • The Department of Enterprise, Investment and Trade
  • Create NSW
  • WSP Australia

For privacy information about your use of the NSW Government website generally, please see the NSW Government’s website privacy statement.
