News Release: Government providing support to the Arts and Entertainment industry

It is with some sense of satisfaction that the Government is appearing to be moving in the right direction with the announcement that the Prime Minister, himself will be taking charge of providing support to the Arts and Entertainment industry.

Lowensteins have been at the forefront of some serious lobbying for this to happen including reaching out to the Federal Treasurer with  meetings and discussions.

As reported in the AFR yesterday Tuesday 2 June , things seem to moving in the right direction with the release of an arts Industry rescue package to be released next week.

We await with great urgency the details of the program.

We also join with our client Ramesh Nithiyendran who was quoted in the AFR yesterday in speaking of the importance of the  arts as being central to our  lives but  Governments seeming to devalue those very activities that are central to our cultural life.
