The Arts and Entertainment Industry was one of the first to be hit by social distancing restrictions, it has suffered enormously throughout the lockdown and will be one of the last to recover.
Yet the Treasurer didn’t even utter the word ‘art’ in 2020 Budget.
Clearly, the $112bn a year arts and entertainment industry does not matter to the Morrison Government.
The arts and entertainment industry is vital to our economic recovery. Not only are other industries like tourism, hospitality and accommodation all going to benefit from its revival, but the sector is primed for stimulus. The industry can go in early and hard and put money into the pockets of workers who are in great need of an income and are going to spend what they earn.
The Greens have a plan that will help Re-Create Australia - but we need your help to put the pressure on the Morrison Government to support the plan.
