Valuing the arts in communities

A modest investment in the arts can deliver a significant return on investment for government agencies and the private sector.

The arts have the potential to bridge our worlds, harness the wisdom of our different views, engage our imagination to explore new ways of thinking and create experiences that can be shared by all people in our community.

The narrative and case studies inThe Arts Ripple Effect: Valuing the Arts in Communities present a credible case for supporting the arts in our communities – it is an evidence-based advocacy tool that articulates the social and economic value of arts participation and investment.

The Arts Ripple Effect: Valuing the Arts in Communities was produced by Castanet with the support of Creative Victoria and the Australia Council for the Arts.
