On 1 July 2023 the people and functions of Creative Partnerships Australia became part of Creative Australia. In the October 2022 Federal Budget the Minister for the Arts, The Hon Tony Burke MP, confirmed his election commitment to transfer the funding and functions of Creative Partnerships Australia to Creative Australia. This was reaffirmed in January 2023, with the release of the Australia Government’s National Cultural Policy: Revive.

Creative Australia continues the programs previously run by Creative Partnerships. This includes administration of the Australian Cultural Fund. You can contact us here.
