HOW GOVERNMENT FUNDING OF THE ARTS KILLS LEADERSHIP AND CREATIVITY

When I asked Dr Jennifer Radbourne (Faculty of Business, Queensland University of Technology, Australia) whether something like Hollywood could ever have been created by Government funding, she laughed.

Dr Radbourne's latest research indicates that Government funding is hazardous to Artistic health. It breeds passivity, undermines leadership and the independent creative spirit. Yet it is rampant in Australia and other countries.

"Consider that there are many American cities smaller than Australian ones - yet have more vigorous private support for the Arts."

Some of the topics covered: Do the Arts actually NEED government funding? Arguments used to defend funding such as - providing community access, it's too important to be left in private hands, necessary to shape national identity, countries like Australia are too small to succeed without it, etc. The historic development of Arts funding. Shifting the focus from creativity towards pleasing funding bodies. The importance of individual passion and how creative types are undercut by the funding regime. And much more!
