In the last two weeks, the knock on effects of cuts to small organisations have shut down two long established programs in Footscray. I imagine similar messages are being sent out in places all over Australia.
Jobs will be lost. Opportunities will be lost. And the community as a whole is the worse off for it, as will be Australia as a cultural nation.
Bollocks. Way to completely fuck things up for years.
This does effect me in a personal way, but I dread to think of Aboriginal communities having their arts funding cut.
