Creative Victoria is responsible for leading the development and delivery of the Victorian Government’s strategy for the creative industries.

Under the Creative Victoria Act, every four years, a new strategy must be developed to guide the government’s investment and initiatives.

In April 2016, the state’s first creative industries strategy Creative State 2016-2020 was launched.

Since the strategy was launched, the economic impact of the creative industries has grown by 23 percent to $31 billion. 260,000 Victorians are now employed in the creative industries, up 15 per cent, and cultural tourism is worth $2 billion, up 88 per cent.

Work is now underway for the 2020-2024 creative industries strategy.
