Why we need an arts party

(Premium content) Premium content

The new Arts Party is not a small issue party. There are good reasons why all of Australia needs this initiative.
Because art and creativity are seriously undervalued

There is a perception among our leaders that art, culture and creativity are optional extras in our society, an unnecessary drain on our country’s finances. That funding these things is an indulgence: so long as they sign the same size cheques their predecessors did, and send them off to the usual agencies to disburse, it can just be written off as status quo marketing. After all, it’s not really important, and there are no votes in it anyway.
