How to get involved

The first phase began in January 2019 with research and analysis of existing reports, data and documentation from a wide range of sources. This informs an understanding of the scale and nature of the broader arts community, as well as the local context. 

Submissions, reports and recommendations that have been made by the sector over the past few years are invaluable documents for the consultants to consider.

Consultation is the second phase to be undertaken during February - May 2019 and is considered a critical component of the Arts Plan’s development. This is one of the busiest times for the arts in South Australia so ideas and experiences will be fresh and dynamic.  

The objective is to seek ideas and stories, the voice and passion of the sector, as well as the vision of the broader community. 

We want to hear from you - the diverse population of South Australia.

You have the opportunity to contribute in any of the following ways: 

  1. Face- to-face meetings with industry, artists, arts and creative organisations across the state 
  2. The consultants will be writing directly to arts organisations, inviting written submissions, however, everyone is welcome to contribute.
    Invitation to make a submission (DOCX, 75KB) 
    Contact us if you require the document in a different format. All written submissions to the Arts Plan will be treated as confidential. Any citations from written submissions to the Arts Plan will remain anonymous, unless written consent for attribution has been given by the original author. 
    Submissions closed on Friday 12 April 2019.
  3. A discussion board on YourSAy is open until 1 June 2019.
  4. An online survey is open until 15 May 2019. 
  5. Open Town Hall Meetings facilitated by the consultants were held in Adelaide, suburban and regional areas of South Australia.  

The public, as well as organisations and individuals in the arts, cultural and creative sector are a critical part of the arts in South Australia and your input into the Arts Plan is invited. 

The Arts Plan is scheduled to be completed by June 2019.
