Fact of the Week

Fact of the Week #46: Young people are more creatively engaged in the arts than other Australians.  The age group for the young people spanned from 15-24 years old.  Almost two thirds (65%) creatively participated in the arts in the previous 12 months, compared to 44 percent for the rest of the population.  This trend of higher participation was present across all artforms.  The Australia Council arts participation survey findings suggest that education played a role, with young students more active in creative participation then young employed persons. www.artfacts.australiacoundil.gov.au
