Despite another challenging year due to COVID-19, Australia's National Cultural Institutions have continued to cultivate our national collections, with the number of objects and the proportion available online reaching record highs.
Key highlights for 2020–21 include:
The number of objects in our national collections has reached an all-time high of 12.1 million.
Over 2.3 million objects have now been digitised (equating to 19.5% of the total collections).
The proportion of objects available to the public online has increased to 14.7%.
The cumulative audience of Screen Australia supported TV productions grew to 148.5 million.
This is the ninth year this information has been captured, building a comprehensive picture of trends in visitation, audience reach and educational programs.
