… government’s agenda is to reduce the Australian arts scene to that of diversionary entertainment.

….savage cuts recently delivered by the Newman Government in Queensland, where the axe has fallen on the arts sector and, directly annihilated the Queensland Centre for Photography’s future. As QCP states on their website, “The cuts and austerity measures announced on the 31st of October were applied exclusively to the small to medium arts sector, with the timing of the announcement leaving only 8 weeks for affected organisations to find alternative ways of funding or sponsorship.” Other programs such as QCP publications, the Queensland Festival of Photography and its international conference in April next year, among others are in a process of review as to our capacity to deliver them.”
