  2. Arts & Education – Investment for the DLGSC’s Creative Learning Partnerships Program.
  3. Arts for All – Facilitate stronger implementation and accountability of the Australian Curriculum: The Arts by requiring schools to submit compliance reports.
  4. Future jobs – Investment for traineeships for young people in critical workforce areas such as production and technical workers.
