Its almost election time and we are thinking about how political parties are addressing and presenting arts and culture policy. Your vote is important. We encourage you to read what the parties and their candidates are saying about arts and cultural policy. Our Executive Director Susan Conroy will be attending the Goulburn Business Chamber Meet the Candidates tonight.
For those of you who want more information.
Regional Arts Australia (RAA) is currently running a campaign to increase support for the Regional Arts Fund (RAF)
Ways to get involved with the RAA campaign:
- Share your support for increasing the RAF on social media. Download GIFs and images from the Regional Arts website and use the hashtags #regionalarts #vote1regionalarts and #thinkremotetogetourvote.
- Contact the Minister for the Arts, Shadow Minister for the Arts and your local member and let them know that regional arts matters and that the RAF deserves to be increased. You can download template letters from The Regional Arts Australia website.
Another great tool coming up for the Election is the ABC Vote Compass an impartial election guide based on your answers to important government policies. You can access Vote Compass here.
NAVA also has an advocacy toolkit online for supporters to get practical and help amplify the arts as an election issue this year. Available Here.
