Championing commitment
to Australia’s cultural future

A New Approach is an independent think tank championing effective investment and return in Australian arts and culture.

ANA was established in 2018 through an initial three year investment from The Myer Foundation, the Tim Fairfax Family Foundation and the Keir Foundation. The Australian Academy of the Humanities was selected as the key delivery partner to establish and shape the program and to deliver a series of research reports drawing on the expertise of the Academy’s Fellows.

ANA from 2021

As we reported late last year, A New Approach (ANA) will be established as an independent entity following its successful 3 year incubation with the Academy. The 5 Insight Reports produced by the program during this time can still be found on our website, but if you wish to continue to receive news from ANA, please register your interest in joining their new mailing list at
