Theatre Network Australia - June 2020

TNA E-News June 2020

We acknowledge that Australia and its performing arts industry have much to do and learn in committing to racial justice. We stand in solidarity with communities who are the survivors of racism, and more specifically First Nations people of this country.


We need your help today!
TNA and our colleagues believe that the federal government is working on final details of a support package for the arts this weekend. It will help if TNA subscribers ask your local MP (especially if they're from the Liberal or National parties) to support such a package. The arts is the second hardest hit industry. TNA has called for a $70m package for the Australia Council to support independents and non-profit companies. We also support LPA's $345m plan to restart and rebuild the live performance industry.
