Inquiry Opens into Canberra's National Institutions

The Joint Standing Committee on the National Capital and External Territories has commenced an inquiry into Canberra’s national institutions.

The Committee will inquire into and report on a range of innovative strategies that Canberra’s national institutions are using to maintain viability and relevance to sustainably grow their profile, visitor numbers, and revenue.

The Chair of the Committee, Mr Ben Morton MP, said “Canberra’s national institutions are a major drawcard for the nation’s capital, attracting local, interstate and overseas visitors. They contribute significantly to the local economy and Canberra’s culture.”

“In launching this inquiry, the Committee is keen to examine creative ways that national institutions engage with both visitors and the private sector. This includes new forms of public engagement and audience participation, reaching out to the community beyond Canberra, and creating a strong online presence,” Mr Morton Said.

The Committee will accept written submissions, addressing one or more of the terms of reference, until Tuesday, 8 May 2018.
