Why Support?

Our Friends at Creative Partnerships Australia outline the importance of supporting the Arts below:

The Benefits of Partnerships to the Community and the Arts

Supporting the arts makes for cohesive communities. Research demonstrates that access to and participation in the arts helps improve community health and wellbeing, inclusivity, shared identity, culture and pride. Research also shows that the arts inspire civic participation and contribute to creating liveable cities*.

Benefits of Partnerships to Businesses

Partnering with the arts connects businesses with the community, increases marketing impact, employee morale and engagement, and encourages creativity among staff, providing new thinking and new ideas. Research on participation in the arts by the Australia Council in 2014** demonstrates that the arts are more important than ever to the Australian community, attesting to the reach which can be achieved through arts partnerships. Key findings include:

  • 19 out of 20 Australians engage with the arts
  • 85% of Australians think that the arts make for a richer and more meaningful life
  • 48% of Australians make art

By supporting the arts, you’re also supporting the Australian economy, furthering the work of the 600,000 Australians who ‘create’ for a living, and contributing to Australia’s $32 billion creative economy.***
