Now, more than ever, the Arts Industry needs a dedicated Federal Department and Minister for the Arts to navigate the Industry through the Covid-19 climate and into recovery. 

Live Performance in particular has been decimated due to Industry shutdowns since mid March, with many venues losing all bookings into 2021, yet no support or planning for the future of the industry at a Federal level has been evident.  

The specific demands for recovery of the Arts, a $111 billion industry, are far removed from those of Infrastructure, Transport and Communications. Navigating the return to a vibrant Arts Industry requires dedicated expertise, planning, advocacy and respect.

Every Australian was asked to play their part in flattening the curve at the start of the pandemic, yet only some Australians are being supported through and out of the pandemic as we enter the recovery phase.

Scott Morrison, will you step up and give the Arts Industry the respect and support it deserves and reinstate a dedicated Department of Arts?
