The Australia Council has published the outcomes of the second phase of consultation on opportunities to strengthen the Major Performing Arts Framework.

5 April 2019

A summary of the outcomes of the second phase of consultation on opportunities to strengthen the National Framework for Governments’ Support of the Major Performing Arts Sector (MPA Framework) is now available on the Australia Council website.

The second phase of consultation was managed by the Australia Council on behalf of the Meeting of Cultural Ministers (MCM) and took place in October and November 2018. It included 15 consultation forums held across all Australian jurisdictions and resulted in the submission of 370 formal stakeholder responses.

Thank you to all those who made submissions and took part in the consultation forums. Feedback received through this process, as well as through the first phase of consultation (an online public survey in July and August 2018), has informed advice the MCM Officials Working Group has provided to Ministers on how to better position the MPA Framework for the future. Ministers are considering options, and officials will continue work collaboratively in the lead up to MCM in September 2019.
