INTRODUCTION

Australians' involvement in heritage and the arts can take many forms. Active involvement can include such creative pursuits as painting, acting or playing a musical instrument, while more passive involvement can cover the enjoyment one gains through experiencing the creative or artistic works of others such as when reading a book, seeing a movie, or visiting a museum or art gallery.


This chapter provides information on Australians' cultural pursuits - the time they spend on particular leisure activities, the cultural venues and events they like to attend and some of the creative hobbies in which they are involved. The focus of this chapter is on less formal involvement in heritage and the arts.


Information on people who are paid or do voluntary work for cultural organisations or produce cultural works for public display are the subject of Chapter 5 of this publication.
