Better support the arts to allow all Australians to fulfil their creative potential.

Policy Methods (Federal & State)

To help achieve this Sustainable Australia Party will:

  • Provide more access to ongoing funding for community arts and cultural initiatives, including better income support to artists negatively affected by significant events such as global pandemics
  • Provide an unconditional universal basic income - or citizen dividend - of $500 per week ($26,000 per annum, indexed from 2021) to every Australian (also see Welfare policy)
  • Offer better protection of creative and intellectual rights
  • Support more local film and television production
  • Protect live music and arts venues from any adjacent build-up of housing and property developments

"Already desperate to counter this decline, venues were instead slammed when increased residential development brought a new issue: noise complaints." Daily Review
