MCM Communique

  |   News


The outcomes from the Meeting of Cultural Ministers on Friday 11 October have been released.

The Major Performing Arts framework will be replaced with a new National Performing Arts Partnership framework.

We welcome the increased contestability of MPA funds and congratulate CIRCA as a new MPA company.

We look forward to taking an active role on behalf of our members towards broader reform across the sector, particularly concerning the national touring scan.

PAC Australia is pleased to see that the need for urgent reform has been recognised. We will be actively providing analysis and recommendations to the touring scan and broader reviews.

We see the touring scan as the starting point for innovation and reform. It should lead to recognition of new business models; better-targeted investment and evidence to demonstrate that increased funding will provide a big return for Australian communities.
