I hope you will share this petition with your community.
The Australian Government have cut the New Music section of the
Australian Broadcasting Commission (ABC).
This is the end of live broadcasts of new Australian music (and new
music more generally), the closure of radio broadcasting for New Music
Up Late, the ABC’s contemporary music program, and the removal of state
based producers around Australia. This also means that visiting new
music ensembles to Australia will uniquely be recorded or broadcast.
We have made a petition here
I hope you ail assist your Australian colleagues by sharing this link to
your members.
There is a comprehensive article here too:
