The Australian Government is putting in place a National Cultural Policy. It will be about the role arts and culture does, and can play in meeting Australian aspirations and expectations. There are a number of ways you can comment. Go to the website and have your say http://culture.arts.gov.au/. The Culture Concept Circle has a commitment to helping grow the social and cultural capital of Australian society. We support the creative ethos by expanding knowledge of historical art, design, music and style, past present and future. We support cultural development by promoting the continuing evolution of a sustainable creative society, of those raising positive voices to protect, preserve and strengthen policies and practices within our communities, as well as those providing a benefit to marginalized sections of society. We want to help nurture those imagining the future.
