Social impacts are improved if cultural and creative activities are accessible to all.

Access to and uptake of concession ticketing is an indication of accessibility in Victoria's key cultural institutions. Cultural institutions also provide access to exhibitions and activities free of charge.

This measure captures concession rates and free attendances at State institutions only, rather than across the entire creative and cultural sector.

This is a new measure and trend data is not yet available.
