Here at the Tasmanian Writers’ Centre, we were dismayed by the Federal Government’s announcement it would cut $104.8 million from The Australia Council.
These cuts will have huge impacts on writer organisations like TWC. A Senate Inquiry has been called to investigate the issue.
Everyone is welcome to make a submission to the Inquiry – the more submissions the Inquiry receives, the more impact it will have.
Your submission can take any form you like – written, illustrated, audio or visual. Your submission could include:
– your credentials or connection to the sector
– the reason for your views
– the potential impact of these budget decisions on the arts/writing
– your experience in/of the arts/writing.
Submissions are due this Friday, July 17.
