Provide stability to our arts organisations.
Support long-term planning.
Support the creative workforce.
Government investment in our arts and cultural organisations is tied to fluctuating Lotterywest revenue.
This annual uncertainty keeps the sector focused on numbers for multi-year and program funding agreements rather than making and presenting high-quality works, events, and experiences for audiences.
Organisations are unable to make ambitious, long term plans and employment remains contractual, short-term, and precarious.
Our Call to Action: guarantee a minimum level of funding through consolidated revenue to the Department of Culture and the Arts to enable organisations to plan and present projects boosting employment opportunities.
