After the coronavirus pandemic devastated art and artists and endured the losses of shows and cancellations or a lack of ticket sales, the Green Party announced that it would offer a minimum of $250 for shows for at least an hour when the event receives a government grant.
Notably, it's based on a call from the Media, Entertainment, and Arts Alliance to get this minimum fee for musicians and expand to comedians and other performers.
The announcement will be attended by David Novak of the Polish rock club duo in Sydney Garage, comedian Kieran Wheatley and musician and union delegate Kimberly Wheeler.
This means that the Green Party will pay musicians, comedians and other artists who participate in government-supported events to get their salaries appropriately, and will support artists when concerts are cancelled.
In this context, Green Party spokesmen reported that the Morrison government had smashed the art sector and treated workers in this medium with disdain.
Finally, the coalition budgeted $38.3 million over the next two years to support the faltering technical sector after Corona.
