Australia lacks a public, expert, independent voice championing investment and return in arts and culture. Defending and promoting the benefit of intellectual and creative life as a critical crucible of the national future is proving to be increasingly difficult. Australia needs an informed, independent entity which has the necessary resources and public authority to advance a coherent, comprehensive policy position from which we might build better political and institutional settings and allied public commentary.
The Myer Foundation, the Tim Fairfax Family Foundation and the Keir Foundation are now seeking expressions of interest from applicants capable of delivering a program to meet this need.
Positively influence Australian arts and cultural practices by:
- Establishing an independent program that will positively contribute to public discourse regarding the role and funding of arts and culture in Australia,
- Engaging an appropriately skilled and experienced individual to lead and oversee the program,
- With the sector’s support, research and publish a data-based case promoting Australian arts and culture, and
- Raising the profile of arts and culture in Australia through media appearances, panel appointments and expert contributions.
