Arts and Culture: Whose responsibility is it?

Australians recently told the Australian Academy of the Humanities that "arts and culture are fundamental to Australia’s way of life". If the creative sector is so essential, why is its future so threatened? This panel discussed the pivotal role governments, artists, community and the private sector collectively play in fostering a thriving arts and culture sector now and into the future.

In this online forum held on 18 August 2020, moderator journalist Ashleigh Wilson joined panel members Senator Sarah Hanson-Young, MAV President and Councillor Coral Ross, Artists Casey Bennetto and Lisa Roet, and Philanthropist Graeme Wood .
