Arts training is an essential part of an innovative nation

To describe creative arts training as a “lifestyle” choice in my view demonstrates a lack of knowledge of what is involved and what is produced. There seems to be no understanding or recognition that artists/arts workers are trained professionals who are highly skilled, knowledgeable and adept. They are also highly employable in many industry sectors – not just the arts.

NB: This is a great reply to the Federal Governments assertion that “working in the the arts sector is a lifestyle choice” issue
