Reset Arts and Culture

We seek new ideas and practices to help us rethink the value of art and culture and re-establish their place in public policy and in our everyday citizenship.

Reset: a collaboration involving art and culture practitioners, policymakers and academics from all three universities in South Australia.


The Reset Arts and Culture program includes events over eight months that seek to understand and reframe the discussion around arts and culture. The program includes public events, reading group sessions as well as discussion sessions.


Reset: A New Public Agenda for the Arts, was a two-day conference of thinking and discussion about how the arts and cultural sector could work to break out of the current impasse through a radical reorganisation of cultural practice and policy.


Reset Arts and Culture has an associated program of reading and discussion. The purpose is to reflect on the public events, collate associated documents and papers, and develop a final report and edited collection for the end of the year.

You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something build a new model that makes the existing one look obsolete.
