NSW is home to exceptional creative talent across diverse art forms. Liberal state and federal governments have decimated the arts sector by slashing arts funding and threatening its independence.
The Greens value the role of arts in our society and will properly fund an independent arts sector and support our artists. A vibrant, diverse and innovative arts sector is at the heart of any thriving society. Strong creative industries not only enrich our community, they are also a significant and growing contributor to our economy and an important strong source of employment.
The Greens have a strong commitment to supporting and promoting an independent and thriving Australian arts sector through increased levels of public funding, and supporting targeted programs and incentives to enable the arts to grow.
