Input on Arts Review sought

The ACT Government is seeking feedback from the community on the findings of an independent review of the arts in Canberra which commenced in September last year.
Chief Minister and Minister for the Arts and Heritage, Jon Stanhope released the final consultant's report on the review today, which was prepared by Peter Loxton and Associates Pty Ltd.
He said the Government would await the outcome of the community consultation before responding to the review.
"The review investigated how the Government funds and supports the arts in the ACT," Mr Stanhope said.

"Over 500 individuals, artists and representatives from local arts organisations participated in the review through community forums and an online survey.
"The Government will await the outcome of the community consultation before adopting a position on any of the findings.
"I encourage everyone with an interest in the arts to share their thoughts on the review," Mr Stanhope said.
Submissions on the consultant's report can be made until Friday 29 October 2010.
