Over the 2016-17 year period, DLGSC’s Culture and the Arts division has undertaken reviews of the writing and visual arts sectors in Western Australia to determine future directions and opportunities for the sectors. Questions on either sector reviews can be directed to researchca@dlgsc.wa.gov.au 

Writing Sector Review         Visual arts review

The Writing Sector Review Final Recommendations is the culmination of an extensive consultation process initiated by Culture and the Arts in 2016 with the aim of identifying future directions and opportunities for the WA writing sector.

In late 2016, a private sector consultancy was engaged to undertake a review of the sector under governance of an independent reference group with expertise in writing sector development. 

The consultant’s report and reference group’s recommendations were released for public comment in July 2017. The resulting Writing Sector Review Final Recommendations is the Department’s final release, which takes into account results of the public consultation.

In October 2016, the research paper Present State - An inquiry into the visual arts sector in Western Australia 2016 was released as a discussion platform for the first stage of the Visual Arts Sector Review.

The review was initiated to provide an insight into the state of the visual arts sector and provide decision-makers with a better understanding of the sector’s needs.
