Australia Council releases resource to ‘future-proof’ arts organisations
March 2, 2020

The Australia Council for the Arts has today launched a new professional development program designed to help small to medium arts organisations transform and reimagine their business models.

Designed to transform organisations through innovative thinking, the Future Form program will be presented nationally by Australia Council delivery partner the Australian, Film Television and Radio School (AFTRS) and is

Advising that the program will support the creative and cultural industries to address immediate and future challenges, Australia Council Executive Director Strategic Development and Advocacy, Dr Wendy Were stated “our creative organisations are increasingly critical to emerging high-growth areas of the world economy.

“This new program is an important part of developing and ensuring the sustainability of our creative sector.

“It’s one of the many ways we are working to connect cultural organisations with ways of thinking to ensure that arts and creativity are thriving to the benefit of all Australians.”

In a supported environment led by industry experts, participants will be guided through a four-phase process to discover, ideate, experiment and evolve.

AFTRS Chair Russel Howcroft added “creative organisations have an incredible opportunity to innovate and grow their organisational and business models through harnessing their imaginative thinking. This program will inspire the sector to apply their creativity, innovation and risk-taking skills to future proofing their businesses.”

The Australia Council strongly encourages organisations affected by the recent bushfires to apply for this program, and these applications will be prioritised.
