Our creative industries were the first to be hit and will be one of the last to recover.

Artists and people working in our creative industries are being left behind during this pandemic.

The Government held a media event in June, but payments are only due to start flowing from November.

Meanwhile, the talented people that work in the creative industries work on short-term casual contracts and are missing out on JobKeeper and without any real help.

The arts are a source of national pride. Australian stories need to be told, especially now.

And our creative industries will be crucial to steering our economy out of this downturn.

We’ve seen iconic Australian galleries and arts centres crumble. We can’t afford to lose one more.

Join my call for a comprehensive support package that delivers the urgent support our creative industries require.
