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

I was surprised to learn my career is actually a ”lifestyle choice”

Apparently, we appear to have reached the point in Australia where pursuing a creative career is considered a “lifestyle choice”. One that won’t lead to satisfactory career or economic outcomes, and is therefore unworthy of government assistance.
