Australia Council campaigns to reopen the arts

#TakeYourSeats is the latest campaign urging people to get vaxxed in order to secure the arts sector's future.

Telling compelling stories and tapping into people’s emotions are what artists do best. Which is why some of the most effective pro-vaccination campaigns this year have been led by Australian artists.

From the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra’s Performance of a Lifetime campaign and NAVA’s #SitForAnArtist message, to the raucous Get the Jab message sung by indie rock musicians, artists and arts organisations have given a voice to one of Australia’s hardest-hit sectors while simultaneously encouraging audiences to get vaccinated.
