All-star arts advisors

The culturatti have a new approach to explaining the importance of the arts

The Australian Academy of the Humanities has $1.65m from philanthropists to “strengthen bipartisan, business and community support for arts and culture,” through its advocacy group, A New Approach.

The lobby “wants to ensure opportunities are seized for the better realisation of the economic, social, cultural and personal benefits that Australian arts and cultural activities provide.

“New Approach recognises that without an independent voice leading a broad and accessible conversation about the benefits of investing in a rich creative and cultural life, Australia risks missing out.” The group now has a reference group to “provide strategic advice,” (membership in Appointments, below).
