About the briefing
Long-Term Insights Briefings are a requirement for all central government agencies in Aotearoa New Zealand and are prepared at least every three years. They are ‘think pieces on the future’ providing an opportunity to help the public and decision-makers consider medium and long-term trends, risks and opportunities.
Over 150 organisations and individuals connected to, or with an interest in, the arts, culture and heritage sector provided valuable input and feedback into the development of this inaugural briefing, through two rounds of engagement. It is clear from the feedback we received there are numerous hopes for the sector into the future. I’d like to thank everyone who generously gave their time, and shared their perspectives with us, as we explored the following important question into the future, what are some of the key areas that will influence the vibrancy and resilience of the cultural sector ecosystem?
The briefing explores five key areas, namely:
- Te ao Māori: considering the future of the sector where te ao Māori is woven throughout the cultural sector, while supporting mana motuhake, and including implications of co-governance.
- Funding, investment and value: shifting how investment is made in the sector and how value is understood and realised.
- Population change: understanding the impacts of projected demographic changes as Aotearoa New Zealand becomes more diverse, including shifts in specific population groups and our sense of identity and place in the world
- Digital technologies: realising the opportunities created by rapidly changing digital tools and platforms, and considering the broader economic and legal implications including in relation to the global marketplace.
- Climate change: fostering a more sustainable sector and the opportunities within the sector to positively impact climate change.
