Australian Public
Galleries Snapshot

Report Released 

The National Public Galleries Alliance (NPGA) has recently released its National Snapshot of the Sector.  A number of galleries in South Australia were involved in the collection of the data and the Regional Galleries Association of South Australia is a member of the Alliance.  

Key findings from the report include:

  • Local Government is the largest investor in small-to-medium public galleries (51% of the 197 public galleries captured in the Snapshot are owned or operated by Local Government).

  • Small-to-medium public galleries employ more than 900 FTE staff.

  • Annually, over 16.5 million people visit our country’s public galleries including state, territory and national public gallery institutions.

  • 44% of visitation is to small-to-medium public galleries in regional areas, compared to 56% to small-to-medium public galleries in metropolitan areas.

  • Annually, more than 5,100 volunteers donate their time and expertise to small-to-medium public galleries. Quantified, the value of this volunteer labour is $15.9 million.

This is an important piece of work that reflects the diversity and depth of the work within the galleries sector and the contribution it makes on an economic level.  The NPGA is currently working on collecting 2019 information and will continue to develop further reports as part of its strategy to provide and analyse data in the long term. 

The full report is available here.
