Adelaide 2055: A 40 Year Vision for the Arts

In late 2014, nearly 200 artists, arts workers and arts lovers gathered to discuss a 40 Year Vision for the Arts in SA.

The Arts Industry Council of SA has been hard at work to compile the ideas and insights from 70 discussion sessions during two-day forum at Adelaide Town Hall. We are now pleased to release this report - Adelaide 2055.

The Adelaide 2055 report encompasses the vision that the arts will become “embedded across the whole of life, especially in our education system, influencing technology and science, encouraging innovation, improving our health and well-being, our society, and care of our natural environment.”

Following ongoing consultation and re-drafting of the Vision, the final version will be released in 2017.
