Quoted from article:

Labor pledged $34.6 million in new arts initiatives at a star-studded policy announcement in Sydney.

If elected, Labor would spend $17 million over four years to set up an arts innovation centre, $10 million to promote the arts in Australian communities and $7.6 million to boost Aboriginal art centres.

Labor also said it would change visa requirements to encourage visiting international acts to use local artists as support.

Opposition arts spokesman Peter Garrett announced the initiatives at a live performance show at Parramatta in the city’s west.
