ADSA has made a submission to the above inquiry.  In our submission we argue that:

• The Australian government’s response to the impact of COVID-19 on the arts sector has done very little to mitigate it; and in a related matter,
• The government must develop an adequate arts and culture policy for post-COVID-19 and beyond.

Since making our submisson, we are pleased that the NSW State Government has pledged $50 million to support the state's arts and cultural organisations.

Our submission has been published and can be read on the link below (submission No. 39).
