Building Western Sydney's Cultural Arts Economy

A key to Sydney’s success

Western Sydney’s cultural arts economy is a good long term business and social investment – to ensure Western Sydney is a place where people can live, work and socialise.

On a per capita basis the Western Sydney Cultural Arts sector has been grossly underfunded and supported ever since the region developed its first modern cultural institutions in the late 1980s.

Today Western Sydney represents 1 in 10 Australians yet attracts only 1% of Commonwealth arts program funding, and 5.5 % of the States Cultural Arts, heritage and events funding.

Despite these inequities, the region has grown its own unique mass of Cultural Arts activity around its venues, events and organisations that provide an exceptional Cultural Arts offer.

In this report we present the compelling economic reasons for greater cultural investment in the region.
