Australia’s arts and culture policy: the state of play
Creatives working and studying in Australia’s tertiary sector straddle the policy agenda for both higher education and the arts. As researchers, educators and students, they are directly impacted by changes to higher education policy. As practicing artists, and educators of our future professional arts community, the direction of Australia’s policies for art and culture shape career direction, creative opportunities and, for some, subject choice.
In this edition of NiTRO, some of Australia’s leading art and cultural commentators, including a number of our most-read previous contributors, discuss the face, facets and future of our national art and culture policy.

Creative arts disciplines make up a significant component of the university staff and student population, yet we lack a vehicle to share common experiences and issues.
NiTRO provides a platform for creative artists practicing in academia to contribute to informed discussion about issues and activities relating to practice, research and teaching taking place within the university sector.
With details of events, conferences, research resources, and articles from guest contributors and creative artists working in DDCA member institutions, subscribing to NiTRO keeps you up to date with the what, why and when of university based creative arts.
Subscription is free and open to artists, educators, policymakers, and anyone interested in creative arts research and tertiary education.
