Creative New Zealand is undertaking rolling reviews of each area of artform practice. Between 2011 and 2014 we have completed reviews of digital arts, Māori arts, Pacific arts, music and dance, and we are now carrying out parallel reviews of visual arts and craft/object arts.
This draft report on our visual arts review presents the results of our research and analysis, as well as the results of focus group discussions held in May 2014, and presents some proposals for change. This report also asks some specific questions to get feedback from the visual arts sector (see page 18). We will take that feedback into account before presenting a final review report to the Arts Council .
