Creativity is of increasingly strategic value to nations such as Australia in making the transition to innovation and knowledge-based economies.

The Australia Council has a vital role to play in facilitating and strengthening the links between cultural agencies, business, education and research institutions across the creative and science/engineering/technology sectors.

The main functions of the Australia Council in maximising the value of creativity for Australia are:

  • Helping to nourish a climate of creativity, through direct and indirect support for arts and education, artists, creative practitioners and organisations
  • Acting as a broker between artists and creative practitioners and organisations, government, cultural agencies and industry both nationally and internationally
  • Growing the creative industries nationally and internationally, through partnerships and industry development assistance that facilitate pathways to commercialisation and innovation and address barriers to market access.
