Creative Australia, (formerly known as the Australia Council) is the Government’s principal arts investment and advisory body and is the centrepiece of Revive, the Government’s National Cultural Policy.

On 24 August 2023, Creative Australia was launched following the commencement of the Creative Australia Act 2023.

Creative Australia makes decisions on grants funding at arm’s length from government through peer and industry assessment and funds a wide range of arts activities, including the creation of new work, collaborations, touring, productions, exhibitions, performances, publishing, recording, promotion, market development and audience engagement.

Creative Australia also supports and promotes creative arts practice that is recognised nationally and internationally, and provides research and advocacy on issues affecting the sector.
