Review of Private Sector Support for the Arts 2011

Review of Private Sector Support for the Arts 2011

The Australian Government recognises the importance of private sector support to promote both the sustainability and growth of the arts and cultural sector. It is committed to exploring ways to increase corporate and philanthropic support for artistic practice.

The review aimed to identify any barriers or impediments that may exist in Australia with respect to private sector support for the arts. The findings of the review will assist in the development of policy options with respect to enhancing the private sector’s contribution to the arts. The review will also be an important element in the development and implementation of the National Cultural Policy.

On 19 April 2011, the Minister for the Arts, the Hon Simon Crean MP, announced that Mr Harold Mitchell AC will chair the review. Mr Mitchell is a leading business figure in Australia with a long-standing commitment to philanthropy and the arts.

Mr Mitchell has completed the review and provided his report to the Minister for the Arts. The Minister is now considering the Australian Government response.
