Objective: Aboriginal arts and culture – what are the strengths and opportunities?

Recommendation and response

Accepted - An updated Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Arts Strategy will be developed.


Arts South Australia is currently in the process of consultation and stakeholder engagement with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities, the wider arts sector and creative industries.

The development of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Arts Strategy is underpinned and guided by a set of cultural values and will provide the government with cohesive and clear direction for long-term growth in the sector. The strategy will enable the government to consider a range of options that will allow it to better meet the needs of the Aboriginal arts and culture sector in South Australia, such as expanded and new programs with tangible outcomes, increased community resources, artistic outcomes and enhanced wellbeing for Aboriginal communities.

Accepted - We will align existing programs with other government initiatives, such as the Aboriginal Art and Cultures Centre, to deliver this recommendation.


Will be progressed within the strategy development under recommendation 9.1.
