AN Statement for the Enquiry into the National Cultural Policy


Ausdance National were invited to represent at the Enquiry into the National Cultural Policy in July. Cathy Adamek (Director ACT) was able to attend with Michelle Silby (Director VIC) and delivered a two minute response drawn from the original AN submission, recent consultation initiated by Julie Englefield (Director QLD) and a review of the government's Revive policy document with Jacob Williams (Chair AN). 

A tremendous combined national network effort!

Our main objective was to draw to their attention the lack of reference to dance in the policy.
