About Creative Industries

South Australia has world-class creative industries.

Our best-selling games, internationally recognised television and films, world-renowned festivals and performing arts, and lauded craft, design and fashion brands provide significant value to our state.

South Australia’s creative industries are a broad ecosystem of sub-sectors linked by their ability to use design-thinking, or creativity, to develop and produce unique, innovative and highly sought-after intellectual property. They consist of 10 distinct but often intersecting sectors supported by relevant governing bodies and the South Australian Government.

First Nations

The South Australian Government acknowledges that First Nations people have been creating and innovating on these lands for generations and recognises the value that this rich culture brings to our state.

Arts South Australia’s dedicated Aboriginal arts and cultures page includes the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Arts Strategy for South Australia and its Implementation Plan. It is also a central web page for the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander arts and cultures sector and wider arts sector.
