The National Art school has produced some of our greatest artists with their unique teaching method, and the proposed changes to this system make no sense whatsoever.
The Turnbull government’s move to gut the tertiary funding of the arts, forcing them to rely solely on universities, is a grave misstep.
Last night, I agreed with a man I thought I never would. So, this morning I’m making my peace. I’m sorry, George Brandis. I am for real.
Now that the government has made further cuts to the arts, is it time for the arts to stand on their own two feet and govern themselves?
The recent art cuts have wounded the industry, but it is those who scream the loudest who misunderstand the issue.
