As a demonstration to politicians of the intrinsic value of the Arts in all its forms, we propose that all Art be removed from Parliament House until such time as the Department of the Arts is restored with full funding.

This should include the removal of artworks from all Ministers' and sitting members' offices and from public display, the silencing of all recorded music, the postponement of any planned live performances musical or theatrical, and the covering of any statues or sculptures.

It is only through the removal of Art from the daily lives of our leaders that they will come to realise its true value to all Australians. Expression of indigenous culture, recording of history, and examining our developing culture as a nation are all important functions of the Arts which are not expressable in dollar terms, and we will not see it devalued by visionless leaders.
