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 will continue in 2023 through public events, forums, new writing and conversations. Click on past events to see what we did in 2021 and 2022 to reframe the discussion around arts and culture. Join our mailing list to be notified of new events.


For a Progressive Arts and Cultural Policy Agenda in Australia is a new statement by the Reset Arts and Culture collective that brings together key themes from last year’s conference Reset: A New Public Agenda for the Arts.


Reset Arts and Culture has an associated program of reading and discussion. The purpose is to reflect on the public events and collate associated documents and papers. Working paper, Art, Culture and the Foundational Economy was published in Jan 2022.

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