After meetings last week with Senator Mark Dreyfus, Tanya Plibersek MP, and Clare Jason MP plus additional requests for a Sydney public hearing, it seems that the NSW arts sector is being listened to. Add your voice to our latest ‘Five On Friday’ survey TNN Survey. This survey asks 5 very quick questions about the impact of the arts budget changes on YOU. It’s the numbers and examples that are so useful in contributing to our sector’s voice for some time to come. We are getting feedback that this short, sharp data collection will be really important in the days to come. Do it and share it with your family, friends, colleagues, performing pets. It takes under a minute but is a big advocacy tool.

It was also included in our September E-News (below) last Friday.
