Contact your local candidates

Join us in urging candidates running in this State election to support a sector that remains impacted by travel and venue restrictions. We are asking our leaders to address soft infrastructure; the artists, organisations, and workers who make and present art; and to provide support in delivering creative excellence, innovation, and capacity-building for a future-proof economy.

We want to see greater access to arts and cultural activities across the State; greater investment to future-proof the creative economy as a contributor to the State's success as a leader in making, doing, thinking and presenting a range of unique arts and cultural experiences.

#ArtsMatters

You can copy and paste the following text into an email to a candidate running in your electorate:

 

Dear

I believe that arts and culture is an important election issue – and I’m not the only one. In a survey undertaken last year, 84% of respondents agree the Western Australian Government should invest in arts and culture to ensure they are available to the public and 94% agree it is important for school children to have access to arts and culture as part of their education.

Over the last five years the combined funding to sports and arts has averaged just 0.8% of General Government expenses. This continues a longer-term decline in the amount of money apportioned to the sector. As a member of the community, I am concerned that Government investment does not reflect what our society believes to be important. There are well documented individual and community benefits from participation in cultural activities.

I also believe that the creative economy is vital to the longer-term health and resilience of a more diverse State economy. There are economic and employment benefits to be gained through a well-planned investment strategy. It’s time to end ad hoc policies and build an ambitious plan for our State’s creative economy.

Read the Four Year Plan for the Arts Here - https://www.artsmatters.org.au/four_year_plan 

We have an opportunity to invest in the future of Western Australia. The creative sector can be an important contributor to our State's ambitions.

Thank you
