Catching the eye of Government: Getting your arts group noticed

This is a past event.

With two big elections in the wind, how can your arts group get noticed and backed by a new government, whatever its stripe? You know you’ve got a great program, a great project. So, who do you lobby? How do you lobby? Should you lobby?

For this event, SAMAG convened a conversation led by writer & performer, Kate McDowell with Shadow Minister for the Arts and former Arts Minister Tony Burke, and Kerri Glasscock, Festival Director and CEO of the Sydney Fringe, and founder of the now legendary underground performance space 505 in Surry Hills, and 505 Theatre in Newtown. Kerri also advises the City of Sydney on building the night-time economy.

Panel included:
Facilitator: Kate McDowell Associate Artist, NORPA & Associate Director, SPRUNG! Integrated Dance Theatre
Tony Burke MP Shadow Minister for Multicultural Australia & Citizenship; Shadow Minister for Environment & Water; Shadow Minister for Arts; Manager Opposition Business in the 45th Australian Parliament
Kerri Glasscock Festival Director/CEO, Sydney Fringe Festival & Director, Venue 505 and Old 505 Theatre
