#OPPORTUNITY: Fund the Arts will be inviting politicians in marginal seats to tour arts facilities in their electorates ahead of the federal election. We are after Ambassadors in all states and territories to help us deliver our message about why arts funding is vital.
With per capita investment decking by 18.9% over the last decade, and artists' income declining by 19% over that same period, there is a lot of investment needed to support the next wave of Australian artists and content.
If you are one of the over 400,000 people who work in Australia's creative sector and are interested in being a Fund the Arts Ambassador alongside others like Joanna Murray-Smith, Peter Rose, @beneltham or @dmiddletonaus get in touch with us.

#FACT: Australia Council funding has declined by 15% in real terms since 2013 according to federal budget papers.

This is one of the many reasons we will be campaigning for $2.5bn in arts & culture funding leading into this election. 1/3

The more funding our writers, musicians, film & TV makers, visual artists, & dancers can access the better will be the art and culture this nation produces for Australia and the world. 2/3

We will be outlining the issues impacting the arts and releasing the detail of our policy platform over the next little while.

To support our campaign share, follow, and donate. 3/3
