Hobart Public Hearing

A public hearing for the Senate Inquiry into the impact of the 2015/16 and 2016/17 Commonwealth Budget decisions on the Arts will be taking place in Hobart this Thursday. Many of Tasmania's key arts personnel and artists have been called as expert witnesses. (CAT's Chair, Neil Hadden and Director, Michael Edwards will speak.)

The hearing is open to the media and the public. There will be limited seating available.

We encourage our community to be present at the hearing as a show of concern about the potential impact of the funding cuts to the Australia Council and the flow-on to the arts in Tasmania.

Date: Thursday 3 September 8:30am

Venue: Marina Room, Hobart Function & Conference Centre, 1 Elizabeth Street Pier, Hobart
