THE BIG IDEA
Nationwide harmonisation and standardisation
Nationwide harmonisation and standardisation is urgent.
•This should include uniform regulation, licensing,
standards and enforcement for transport (both road
and rail) and agriculture. State regulatory reforms
would be encouraged through federal government
incentives and penalties linked to the rate of
progressive reform.
•Future infrastructure investment decisions should be
approached from a national perspective.
Priority themes
•The challenges posed by climate change with particular
emphasis on its impacts on the food, fibre and forestry value
chains
•Nationwide harmonisation of regulation, standards and
enforcement
•Development of appropriate incentive schemes to promote
environmentally sustainable behaviour and strategies
•Attraction, recruitment and retention of people, families and
business to remote, rural and regional communities
•Broad parity of access to infrastructure and services for remote,
rural and regional Australia

Creativity is central to sustaining and defining the nation, fuelling the imaginations of citizens, nurturing our children and
nourishing healthy communities. Indigenous culture is central to this. Creativity is broader than the arts, but the arts are central
to creativity
We will aim to double cultural output by 2020. To achieve this there is a need to implement policies that will produce a
sustainable creative sector and support artists, build educational capacity, integrate Indigenous and settler perspectives and
recognise the centrality of the arts and creativity to the whole economy.
This will result in increased personal capacity and confidence of all citizens, including artists, a stronger economy and greater
international understanding of Australia as a mature, creative, innovative society.
Link the creative arts and education
Generating new investment models (private and public)
Creativity in the new economy central to innovation
Distribution of creative content via broadcasting and broadband networks, and major
institutions
Indigenous core and centrality of arts
Bring art into our schools by introducing ‘practitioners in residence’ via a national mentoring plan funded by philanthropic funds and tax incentives
Mandate creative, visual and performing arts subjects in national curricula with appropriate reporting requirements for schools. Explore new
opportunities for extension and development such as Creativity Summer Schools, pre-service and in-service training for teachers
Digitise the collections of major national institutions by 2020
Make creativity a national research priority with funding access to R&D, ARC and similar funding
Create a National Endowment Fund for the Arts – incorporating public endowment and private philanthropy (including patronage), and provide a wide
range of support including loans and grants; a review of philanthropy and tax incentives to support organisations and individual artists and expand
the scope of Prescribed Private Funds
Fund creative endeavours through a 1% creative dividend from all Government Departments for expenditure on arts (including design, performance,
installation )
Develop mechanisms to reward success
Federal responsibility for public liability obligations for arts organisations
Creativity is central to Australian life and Indigenous culture is the core to this. To measure, document and leverage the strengths of this culture, to
articulate our role and improve protection of indigenous culture, language and heritage through a National Indigenous Cultural Authority.
A whole of government approach to the arts, culture, design and the creative economy across all sectors, including improved resourcing, linkages
and access by using broadband connections and including building connections between sports and arts
Facilitation of artists in residence across all industries and institutions to engage in story telling, sense making and capacity building
Develop a national cultural and design strategy and policy
