In addition to the previous email re Arts Funding, Drama Australia urges all members to write to their local Federal MPs.
Drama Australia has written to the Prime Minister and Federal Arts Minister advocating for increased funding to the Australia Council for the Arts to support theatre organisations that did not receive core funding beyond 2021 especially those companies that provide young people with creative pathways and opportunities beyond the classroom.
Drama Australia and Drama Victoria encourages each member to write to their local Federal politicians expressing their concerns about the Australia Council funding shortfall and the COVID-19 pandemic in regards to the decimation of the arts industry. Click here for Drama Australia letter as a guideline for your letter.
When you write to your local Federal MP please CC The Hon. Paul Fletcher Federal Minister for Communication, Cyber Safety and the Arts at Paul.Fletcher.MP@aph.gov.au.
