Impact of our National Cultural Institutions
In 2011–12, the Ministry for the Arts and LEK Consulting developed a key performance indicator framework to measure the impact of our national cultural institutions and highlight the key role they play in the cultural lives of Australians and the important place they occupy in the Australian cultural landscape.
The framework was developed in close consultation with Australia’s national cultural institutions and provides a consistent, best practice approach to measuring and reporting performance data and more clearly aligning their activities, reporting and planning processes with the Australian Government’s cultural objectives.
A report into the impact of our national cultural institutions reveals a number of very encouraging statistics showing that Australia’s cultural sector continues to go from strength to strength in a challenging physical and online environment. The statistics for 2013–14 can be found below; the Ministry for the Arts is currently compiling the results for the 2014–15 reporting period.
