National Arts Roundtable Report

On 6th November 2015 a group of seventy leading arts sector representatives from across the country gathered in at the Performance Space in Sydney for a one-day national roundtable. It was an initiative of Feral Arts on the behalf of #freethearts and ArtsPeak. Delegates we were joined online by 50 other artists and organisations from across the country. Representatives came from every state and territory, from a diverse range of artforms, as well independent artists, small to medium companies, service organisations, advocates, major performing arts companies, venues and festivals. Independent facilitator Anne Dunn chaired proceedings. Read report.

Australian Charter for the Arts

The intent of the Charter is to enable a voice for artists, arts organisations, arts workers and supporters of the arts – across all artforms, locations and communities; and to articulate a vision of the role and purpose of the arts.
