Final report into Arts and the News to Rural and Regional Australia

The final report from the House of Representatives Inquiry into Arts and the News to Rural and Regional Australia has recently been tabled.

The report makes a total of 9 recommendations and notes that engagement with the arts for individuals and communities is necessary and important – particularly for regional areas like Tasmania.

Volunteering Tasmania was pleased to note that the importance of volunteering was highlighted in the report . It noted that our artistic groups that engage volunteers and amateur artists, increasingly benefit from the access to professional networks and events- often only afforded through regional and rural tours.
