FEBRUARY 2017
Launch of S2M report

Welcome to the February edition of Art Wires.

We are delighted to launch today ‘S2M: The economics of Australia’s small-to-medium visual arts sector’, a study commissioned by NAVA from Economists at Large. This research was supported by City of Sydney and is the first of its kind to be undertaken since the Contemporary Visual Arts and Craft Inquiry in 2002. Download the report here and read the media release here.

For organisations this report will be especially important. Based on a survey conducted in 2016, the data in this study reveals that the small-to-medium (S2M) visual arts sector employs over 2,000 people, puts $100 million into the economy and produces 26,000 new art works each year with a budget worth just 0.03% of Federal Government revenue. However, there has been a 55% decline in per capita federal arts spending since 2008.

We hope you find the report a useful tool for policy, planning and advocacy purposes.

S2M Report Launched

After a gap of 15 years, at last the visual arts sector has some up-to-date reliable evidence on which to base its ideas for changes needed to policy and funding, says
Tamara Winikoff.
