Arts and Culture encompasses four very diverse sectors:
The Visual Art & Design sector. Visual arts and design are art forms that create works that are primarily visual in nature, such as arts and contemporary craft, Indigenous cultural arts, design, photography, arts administration, and fine arts such ceramics and sculpture.
The Dance sector covers modern, classical and Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander dancing along with musical theatre and dance teaching.
The Live Performance, Entertainment and Music sectors include organisations that produce live theatrical or musical performances, and creative artists and musicians themselves. The industry also encompasses those that operate performing arts venues.
The Screen and Media sector covers creative, management, administration and technical production roles in the screen and media sectors of: film production, television production, radio broadcasting and interactive digital media (such as electronic games, websites, educational resources).
Traineeship and apprenticeship commencements in these sectors are low. Participation is often in the form of voluntary or community involvement, or it is pursued on a ‘for interest’ basis.
