The Role of Artists & the Arts in Rescuing the Economy

Melanie Tait & Senator Sarah Hanson-Young

The Australian arts industry was one of the earliest economic casualties of Covid-19 as museums, theatres, galleries, festivals and music venues shut down to avoid a public health crisis leading to massive job losses – even as more than ever we rely on music, TV and books to help us cope with isolation.

In this webinar we speak to Greens Senator and spokesperson for the arts Sarah Hanson Young, author and playwright Melanie Tait and chief economist Richard Denniss who joined a discussion on the role of arts and artists in the economy.
