Review of Private Sector Support for the Arts 2011
The Australian Government recognises the importance of private sector support to promote both the sustainability and growth of the arts and cultural sector. It is committed to exploring ways to increase corporate and philanthropic support for artistic practice.
The review aimed to identify any barriers or impediments that may exist in Australia with respect to private sector support for the arts. The findings of the review will assist in the development of policy options with respect to enhancing the private sector’s contribution to the arts. The review will also be an important element in the development and implementation of the National Cultural Policy.
On 19 April 2011, Arts Minister Simon Crean announced that Mr Harold Mitchell AC would chair the review. Mr Mitchell is a leading business figure in Australia with a long-standing commitment to philanthropy and the arts.
The report was released on 7 March 2012 and the Australian Government response was included as part of the launch of Creative Australia, the national cultural policy on 13 March 2013.
