Minister Peter Garrett made an important speech to the National Press Club on 27th October regarding the need for a national cultural policy.
An on-line forum has now been established to gather input from the general public.
The site provides access to the National Cultural Policy proposed framework, and
a link to his speech.
It is important to ensure that the voice of our sector is heard and represented fairly in this debate, and so I encourage you to login and make comment.
You can do this several ways:
- by adding your own ideas as a new thread
- by reading through the existing threads and commenting on these
- by supporting those who have added threads about the collections sector in particular
You can use this site to share some of that discussion and to encourage others to participate.
To read some of Museums Australia's views attached are imporant statements about Museums and Education, and Caring for Our Culture.
If you have never posted a comment on an on-line forum, now is the time to start.
Let's not get left out!
