TNA’s Federal 2024-25 Pre-Budget Submission

Last month TNA made a submission to the Federal Government as a part of its regular Pre-Budget Submissions process. This is an opportunity to make recommendations to the government on what should be included in the upcoming budget for the next financial year.

TNA consulted with a number of members, our Board, funding bodies, and other peak bodies and service organisations to determine what was most needed and what might be possible in the current economic and political climate. Our recommendations capitalise on growing calls, commitment to, and capacity for interdepartmental and interjurisdictional collaboration, and propose a number of initiatives to grow sector capacity in cost-effective ways.

  • Recommendation 1: A cohesive strategy for arts and culture international touring and exchange
  • Recommendation 2: Support for national touring, exchange, and regional development
    • Coordinate investment in national touring by federal, state, and local governments
    • Increase investment in Creative Australia’s Playing Australia program
  • Recommendation 3: Support for arts and culture workforce development
    • Facilitate stronger implementation and accountability of the Australian Curriculum by requiring
  • states to publish compliance reports
    • A pilot program for a national Creative Schools program modelled on Sporting Schools
    • Reinstate Creative Australia’s ArtStart program
  • Recommendation 4: Increased capacity of arts and culture to contribute solutions to the mental health crisis
    • A national Social Prescribing Scheme that includes arts and cultural activities and specified pathways for mental health referral
    • Support training and accreditation for artists and arts workers active in mental health settings

TNA will use this submission and our recommendations in our advocacy for the sector throughout the year.
