Catching the eye of Government: Getting your arts group noticed



WHEN: 6-8pm – 25 Mar 2019

COST: $20/10/FREE


Election winds are blowing...

With two big elections in the wind, how can your arts group get noticed and backed by a new government, whatever its stripe? You know you've got a great program, a great project. So, who do you lobby? How do you lobby? Should you lobby?

Come along and shoot the breeze with two people who'll know the answers, current Shadow Minister for the Arts and former Arts Minister Tony Burke, and Kerri Glasscock, Festival Director and CEO of the Sydney Fringe, and founder of the now legendary underground performance space 505 in Surry Hills, and 505 Theatre in Newtown. Kerri also advises the City of Sydney on building the night-time economy.

If Labor wins the next federal election, it's possible the former federal Arts Minister, Tony Burke, could return to his old job. Since 2013, among a raft of shadow portfolios, he holds the pivotal role of Leader of Opposition Business and perhaps, more importantly, is Shadow Minister for the Arts.

Join SAMAG for a unique opportunity to hear - and question - these two prominent leaders.
