Rebranding the Arts
In the age of Netflix, Stan and iView, never in human history have we had access to such vast quantities of high quality, cheap culture. The latest stats from Live Performance Australia show us that Aussies are voting with their rear ends, with theatre revenues down 43 per cent and attendances by nearly a quarter on the preceding year.
