Is government investment in the arts, such as music and theatre, a waste of money?

  • It can be

    Providing billions of dollars over decades to fund movie flop after movie flop that does not generate an investment does not seem like a good investment. The average income per year {at least a few years ago} of someone employed within the arts industry in Australia is less than some people get on welfare.

    There needs to be a much better plan for how to spend arts money. It was a joke ad during the presidential election in 2012 but does Big Bird {and Sesame Street} really need to receive millions of dollars from the government in subsides.

  • Children need art

    Children need art because it teaches many skills that they will have to use later in life. It teaches them lessons that numbers and letters can't teach. Also what if a child who struggles with school is an excellent artist, this would give them courage and confidence that other classes could not give them

  • Music is meant

    For people to enjoy and have fun with. If it's singing, dancing, or just plain fun then it's meant for the world to enjoy. It's for you to enjoy. Our heart can sometimes feel anger, but you can help yourself with music that makes you feel special. Do what you like.
