UWA Music presents: Callaway Centre Research Seminar Series - Margaret Seares : Funding the Arts in Australia: the theory and the practice Other events...
The Conservatorium of Music is a vibrant centre for research in music and music education. A thriving community of scholars is engaged in exploring the frontiers of knowledge, working on a wide range of research projects with diverse outputs.

This week, Margaret Seares discusses 'Funding the Arts in Australia: the theory and the practice'

Abstract: In 1996 American academic Mark J Schuster published an article entitled ‘Questions to Ask of a Cultural Policy: Who Should Pay? Who Should Decide?’ in the journal Culture and Policy.

This is a perennial discussion, not only in Australia, and the conclusions he reached in 1996 have changed in relevance over time. This talk will look at Schuster’s original discussion, and the realities of cultural policy and decisions over arts funding as they exist in Australia today.

This is an issue that, in one way or another, is likely to confront almost all music graduates and can also provide insights into how research funding is managed in Australia.

Bio: Emeritus Professor Margaret Seares is a former Head of the (then) School of Music, CEO of the (then) Western Australian Department for the Arts, and Chair of the Australia Council for the Arts. She has also served on the Advisory Board of the Australian Research Council and the Education Investment Fund.
