Australian Political Party Pledges Major New Arts Funding

There’s a national election campaign going on in Australia. And what would the official opposition party do for the arts? “Opposition pledged to “ease the squeeze” on the ABC and turn around the decline in film and television production with $175 million in new arts funding. The ABC would get $105 million over four years, while the film industry would get an immediate $70 million injection, followed by a wide-ranging review into structural reform and private investment incentives.”
