Let's Re-Create Australia

The Arts and Entertainment Industry was one of the first to be hit by social distancing restrictions, it has suffered enormously throughout the lockdown and will be one of the last to recover.

Yet the Treasurer only uttered the word 'art' ONCE in the 2021 Budget. The Morrison Government continues to leave creative workers behind, despite the pandemic having brought the $112bn a year industry to its knees.

The Arts and Entertainment sector is vital to our economic recovery. It is time that we gave back and supported the industry that gives so much to our social fabric and cultural identity.

Dear Prime Minister and Minister of the Arts 

The Arts and Entertainment Industry has been devastated as a result of the health crisis and needs a helping hand.

I implore the Government to support The Greens plan to Re-Create Australia's by:

  • Creating Australia's Future - A $300 million program that would see an Artist in Residence in every school and library across the country.
  • Billion Stories Fund - an Australian content fund that will help kick start Australia’s screen industry and tells Australian stories.
  • Australia Live - A $1 billion grants fund to inject money into Australia’s festival, music and live performance sector. 
  • The arts and entertainment industry has always been there for the Australian community during times of crisis. They’ve stepped up to keep creating and connecting with our community.

It is time that we gave back and supported the industry that gives so much to our social fabric and cultural identity. 

Yours sincerely
