The Federal Government has released guidelines on how it will spend the money it has taken from the Australia Council in order to fund Minister Brandis’ proposed National Program for Excellence in the Arts (NPEA).
Richard Watts wrote an analysis of the guidelines for Arts Hub on Wednesday 1 July, 2015. “Most of the reaction from within the sector has focused on concern about what will not be funded, particularly projects by individual artists and new media.

Submissions to the Senate Inquiry into the NPEA are due Friday 17 July 2015.
