We are directing approximately $5M to the Resilience Fund to provide immediate relief to the Australian arts sector. The 2020 Resilience Fund is designed to provide emergency relief to support the livelihoods, practice and operations of Australian artists, groups and organisations during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Australia Council has today announced that 144 arts organisations will receive a share of $31.7M per annum in funding offered through the revised Four Year Funding for Organisations program.
National governments around the world have announced economic stimulus and support measures in response to COVID-19. These include wage supplements that will help galleries pay staff, benefits for employees of art companies and organisations, and entitlements for the self-employed that may help artists.
Two new national measures—one to support non-profit employment and another disbursing core grant instalments early—could help, but advocacy groups raise questions.
Desde la Dirección Nacional de Cultura estamos trabajando para dimensionar el impacto que las medidas sanitarias de público conocimiento están teniendo sobre la cultura y sus trabajadores.
