National Day of Action #artprotagonists

The Protagonists are a collective of inter-dependent artists and arts workers operating across and between disciplines, organising under the banner #artprotagonists. We have come together in the wake of recent Australia Council funding decisions affecting the independent arts sector as a result of a succession of cuts to their budget, and an atmosphere of hostility towards independent artists. We are taking this crisis as an opportunity to take action and fight for a future for artists and arts workers in this country.
