  • The arts are a vehicle for positive social change and social connectivity

  • The arts improve public health and wellbeing

  • The arts are key to place-making and transform the liveability of public and private spaces

  • The arts are a strategic national resource and huge economic driver in terms of employment, cultural tourism, and revenue

Make it Better

The Creative Tool Box is designed for self-directed learning and development, to assist you in growing your personal and professional skills as you see fit. It is a free and democratic resource that adapts as the creative landscape changes; the sections and links you see are just examples of what is possible.

We invite everyone to build upon this current structure, to make the Creative Tool Box a state-wide go-to for all artists and arts workers seeking development and for anyone considering a career in the arts. All ideas, feedback or content suggestions are warmly welcomed through the Make It Better contributors portal.
