This inquiry could be a turning point for Australia’s understanding of creative and cultural industries and institutions. Out of COVID’s devastation of the sector, if policy thinking grasps the moment, there could come a new level of appreciation of how embedded creative and cultural activity is in the Australian economy and society and new steps commenced to recover and grow its role as we work our way out of the pandemic. Creative and cultural industries policy development, such as it has been in Australia, has had a bipartisan flavour. Some of the best policy work has been done under both major parties as well as the Greens and some of the best implementation of policy vision has been seen under both Coalition and Labor governments at state and federal level. This is a time to review and update the best of our policy thinking to position the creative and cultural industries as a core source of employment, economic growth and social benefit.
