Major Australian arts festivals have released a statement calling for the return of Australia Council funding, published in full below.
The Confederation of Australian International Arts Festivals is dismayed by the drastic reductions in funding for the small to medium arts sector as the impact of last year’s cuts to the Australia Council emerges with their announcement of the four-year funding results. We reiterate the LPA’s call “for the “$72.8 million cut by the Coalition from the Australia Council budget to be returned so that jobs, growth and innovation in the live performance industry can be sustained”.
