National Press Club with the Hon Tony Burke MP

PPA was delighted to hear from the Hon Tony Burke MP, Minister for Employment and Workplace Relations and Minister for the Arts, at the first address to the National Press Club of Australia for the year.

The Minister’s main focus was on a new cultural policy, the centrepiece of which is a $286-million creative industries funding package (aptly named Revive), as well as a new arts investment and advisory body — Creative Australia. During an entertaining speech, the Arts Minister revealed his penchant for poetry (he’s read a poem a day since he was 17) before going on to outline the Government’s plans to boost Australian content on our screens.  This would include streaming platforms being required to introduce quotas to include Australian content by the middle of 2024.
