The Liberals on the Arts

johnboy 19 September 2012

Zed Seselja and Vicki Dunne have pushed out an arts policy:

if elected, a Canberra Liberals Government will:
— Commit an extra $2.4 million to enable the Cultural Facilities Corporation to develop the Kingston Arts Precinct, including a purpose-built facility for Megalo Print Studio + Gallery. This will ensure the heritage value of the Fitters’ Workshop is maintained, and Megalo has space in the precinct.

— Commit at extra $100,000 every year for the Canberra Symphony Orchestra

— Commit an extra $50,000 every year to extend arts grants funding, with a focus on local artists

— Relocate Arts ACT to the Economic Development Directorate, to recognise the contribution of the arts to the ACT economy

— Develop a Creative Industry Plan.
