Art Facts: the new home for statistics about Australian arts

Art Facts is the new home for statistics about Australian arts.

Drawing on data collected by the Australia Council for the Arts, the Australia Bureau of Statistics and various stakeholders throughout the sector, it includes a range of facts about Australia's vibrant arts sectors and the latest trends in art creation, industry, trade, participation and support.

Visitors to the site can explore visual and crafts statistics: from how many people attend galleries and do visual arts and crafts to how much visual artists earn and the international connections of Australian arts practice. They can also find out more about music: from what musicians earn to concert ticket sales and how many rock songs were released last year.

Though currently dedicated exclusively to music and the visual arts, the site will soon feature other cultural sectors.
