I'm serious about supporting the ARTS and LOCAL ARTISTS. The arts receive some support in the ACT, but it falls short. I know because I have supported, volunteered and worked with various local artists and arts organisations over the past 10 years. I understand the contribution they bring to the community.

I propose a meeting with the Australia Council to discuss:
- - - - - - - - - - -
• equal funding for Canberra with other capital cities,
• equality and transparency in allocating funding for all cultural institutions,

Here’s a different ARTS idea for Canberra & the nation
- - - - - - - - - - -
I will propose we work with national theatre and arts organisations and the sector to establish a business case for a National Theatre in the capital of Australia – why not on the foreshore of Lake Burley Griffin in West Basin?

So if you support the arts ACT please consider voting DIFFERENT and independent this election.
