FUTURE FORUM #3: Show me the money

Tue 29 Apr 2014

This is a past program.
ABC Southbank Centre

As government funding dries up, how will public galleries survive in the future? 

How can visual arts organisations survive in an era of declining government funding and rising competition? Can we rely on the patronage of wealthy individuals and companies? Does the privatization of the arts come with a cost? Should we be looking at entirely new business models that can free us from a hand to mouth existence? Who will support the sector in the future?
