I'm President of NFP Regional Arts Advocacy Group > Sunshine Coast Creative Alliance. We are ambitious in our desire to lead change in our community through arts and culture. This is a question of survival. As a regional community we can't compete with construction, tourism and economic development noise unless we add significant value and are as smart as we can be. So we not only want to be part of the national policy conversation but we want to make a valuable and provocative contribution. Were are engaged in policy, but we also want to get out hands dirty through meaningful action.
Particular area of interest is new non-gov funding models for arts groups.
