The NSW Government’s Creative Industries Taskforce is calling for public submissions to help shape the future of the sector over the next decade.
Acting Premier and Minister for Trade and Investment Andrew Stoner said a report capturing outcomes from a recent Creative Industries Think Tank is available and an online forum now open on the NSW Government’s Have Your Say website.
“More than 80 of the best and brightest minds in our creative industries sector came together at a Think Tank during Vivid Sydney last month,” Mr Stoner said.
“Industry leaders from fashion, publishing, architecture, music, advertising, design, film & television, gaming, digital media and the performing arts participated in the Think Tank, including members of the NSW Creative Industries Taskforce.
“The Taskforce has been appointed by the NSW Government to develop a 10-year Industry Action Plan for the sector, and the public are now invited to contribute to the work of the Taskforce via the Have Your Say website
“The Taskforce is keen to hear from the creative industries on key areas of debate and discussion, including the digital environment, how to leverage our tourism and visitor economy, and opportunities for export growth and in regional NSW.”
Creative Industries Taskforce Chair and ARIA CEO Dan Rosen said the Think Tank report and the discussion paper considered at the event are available at http://haveyoursay.nsw.gov.au/iap-creativeindustries.
“I encourage industry stakeholders and the wider public to visit the online forum, which will be open until 30 July,” Mr Rosen said.
“You can also email suggestions and ideas through to us directly via email@example.com.
“Visitors to the Have Your Say website can register their email details so we can keep them informed of developments and further opportunities to contribute to the formation of the Industry Action Plan.
“Thank you to everyone who has already given us an idea or two – this process has kick- started an important conversation about the future of our sector.”
