At the Meeting of the Cultural Ministers in Canberra on 14 September, Ministers noted the important contribution of the Major Performing Arts (MPA) sector, as part of an ecology that also includes small-to-medium companies, to the development of the arts in Australia, and agreed to the release of a national consultation paper. Ministers also indicated that, following consultation, they will consider proposed enhancements to the MPA Framework out of session by early 2019.
The Department of Communications and the Arts released an online survey in July on the MPA Framework to gather feedback in advance of the Meeting of Cultural Ministers in September 2018
The Australia Council for the Arts has advised this week that the second phase of consultation seeks a response to the Major Performing Arts Framework Consultation Paper.
