ARTS IMPROVES LIVES 2017 WA STATE ELECTION CAMPAIGN
The Chamber congratulates the newly elected Labor party and newly announced Minister for Culture and the Arts David Templeman.
The Chamber ran the #ArtsImprovesLives pre-election campaign calling on all parties to have a well-resourced arts policy as part of their election platforms. At the Chamber’s Arts Debate on 20 February Labor announced its arts policy which contained several infrastructure and program initiatives.
Labor promoted jobs and growth as its priorities during the election campaign. The Chamber believes that the arts and culture sector is well-suited to deliver on these priorities. We look forward to working with the Government and newly appointed Minister for Arts and Culture David Templeman on the government's arts policy.
In the countdown to the State election we shared stories from a variety of arts organisations and individual artists working in WA, as well as unique projects, that have had a positive impact within the WA community.

YOUR SMALL INVESTMENT GIVES OUR SECTOR AND BIGGER VOICE
There is still so much more that needs to be done to make sure that arts and culture are not sidelined post election.
We need your help to raise $30,000.
We are asking everyone to give just a small amount and then ask their friends, family and supporters to do to the same..
It is super easy to contribute and achieve this goal together.
