The Greens value the vital role artists play in our society, telling our many and varied stories, helping us to understand our world and challenging us to see it from a different perspective, or simply bringing us together as a community and entertaining us – in good times and bad. To make sure performing arts has a vibrant future in Australia, we need to encourage innovation, support artists and make sure as many Australians as possible get to share the experience.

The Greens’ priorities include support for innovation in the arts and for live performance both domestically and globally; policies to support artists through periods of unpredictable work; an emphasis on arts in early childhood education and throughout schooling; and a commitment to clean up copyright law so it does its job of supporting both creators and consumers rather than corporate copyright owners.
