Australia: Commonwealth Arts Policy and Administration

The newsletter Observgo summed up Commonwealth Arts Policy and Administration as follows: This information document provides an overview of Commonwealth arts policy and administrative developments from the time of the federation’s creation in the early 20th century. The author notes initiatives taken by various governments since the 1970s, and examines the place of the arts in the government’s 2008 budget. He emphasizes that while the government has adopted measures aimed at increasing young Australians’ participation in the arts, funding has not always been sufficient to foster artistic development in the schools. The document is available on the parliamentary library website of the Australian Parliament.
