GREENS VISION FOR THE ARTS, CREATIVE AND CULTURAL SECTORS
Mark Parnell MLC, Tammy Franks MLC
The Greens value the arts, which inject meaning and reflection into our increasingly pressured daily lives. The arts, cultural experiences and creative artists are a vital ingredient for a happy, prosperous and fulfilled nation. The arts contribute to the social wellbeing, economy and cultural life of Australia. The Australian Greens are committed to supporting and promoting Australian artists and their work, and particularly encouraging young and emerging artists as they establish their careers.  Live music, exhibitions, literature and performances all enrich our lives. The Greens plan is to secure a vibrant future for the arts. They also pointed to their Federal policies and achievements which are summarised here: http://greens.org.au/artists
