AICSA looks forward to working with the new government on progressing arts and culture in South Australia. We were happy to see the release of ‘Investing in the Arts’ prior to the election and the commitment of the government to establishing an arts plan. Following the AGM, AICSA has written to Premier Steven Marshall to request a meeting to update on next steps for ‘Investing in the Arts’ and election commitments, including:

– Increasing grants for artists – leading to sustainable careers
– Developing and implementing South Australia’s first arts plan in almost 20 years
– Establishing a Commissioner for Cultural Development to lead a whole-of-government approach to improving connections and collaborations between the community and the arts sector
