Arts on the Agenda – putting arts and culture on the radar this federal election
This is a past event.
The Budget is out and a federal election imminent, so how do we as a community get arts and culture onto the political radar?
The impacts of the pandemic are far from over for our sector, but the Budget plans to wind down COVID recovery initiatives. We continue to demonstrate the huge public value arts and culture bring to Australia, but that evidence and value continues to be misunderstood or ignored.

Merindah Donnelly (Executive Producer BlakDance)
Dr. Ben Eltham (Writer, researcher)
Jess Harwood (Artist and Activist)
