Don't you guys ever stop working?

14 March 2016

This weekend, teachers from every state have booked over 3,000 students into our events so far. You are such a dedicated group!

It's always fun to see what you're booking - it's ranged from the Summer of the Seventeenth Doll  to Hippo Hippo with lots of incursions across dance, music, cultural groups, australiana...fantastic.

Turnbull Govt Worse For The Arts Than Abbot's

5 March 2016

The arts community was hopeful that under Turnbull's leadership, the strange policy of Arts Minister, George Brandis, under the Abbot Government, would be reversed and some logic restored to funding the sector.

Not only has that not happened, with increased cuts, the reality is the Turnbull Government is actually worse. Granted Turnbull is a less embarrassing speaker to have at your event, but he's done our sector no favours.
