Perspectives on Cultures - A new release to publish articles on topics relating to culture and the arts.

Culture and the arts can have a significant impact on Australian society, and are acknowledged as a means of bringing people together, supporting quality of life and enhancing community networks as well as generating economic outcomes through employment opportunities, business and government funding. The National Centre for Culture and Recreation Statistics (NCCRS), has introduced a new series, Perspectives on Culture (cat. no. 4172.0.55.001), to provide informed commentary on a range of topics relating to this area.

  • Attendance at art galleries and museums
  • Cinema attendance
  • Library and archive attendance
  • Zoo and botanic garden attendance

The second issue of Perspectives on Culture was released on 29 August 2012. This issue covered:
  • Cultural attendance by people with a disability
