Do we really think artists should have total freedom of expression? How is the digital revolution changing the way we experience and share art? How much do we create and participate in the arts, and which ones do we favour? How do they impact our communities? Do the arts matter to individual Australians?

Connecting Australians: Results of the National Arts Participation Survey , conducted by the  Australia Council for the Arts, provides a comprehensive picture of Australians’ evolving relationship with the arts in their daily lives.

In this presentation, Lisa Walsh (Director of Research and Knowledge Management, Australia Council for the Arts), will highlight findings that capture the value of the arts to Australians; their attitudes, views about the impact of the arts, their propensity to donate time or money to the arts – and much more.
