Creativity Connects Us is the five year (2019–2023) strategy for the Australia Council for the Arts, the Australian Government's principal arts funding and advisory body. Building on the achievements of A Culturally Ambitious Nation and drawing from significant consultation and evidence, the new strategic priorities respond to the rapidly changing landscape of Australian arts and creativity.

− individual creative practitioners who operate as social enterprises, sole traders or small businesses

− arts organisations

− programs and initiatives delivered by all spheres of government

– national, state, territory and local

− private funding and investment, including commercial and philanthropic

− arts-related policies and legislation

− codes of practice and protocols

− peak bodies

− agents and other artist representatives

− service organisations − arts education and training

− space for making art

− professional and peer networks

− collaborators and partners across sectors, including community and commercial.

The Council’s 2019–2023 strategy aligns to five strategic objectives:

  • Australians are transformed by arts and creativity
  • Our arts reflect us
  • First Nations arts and culture are cherished
  • Arts and creativity are thriving
