Australian : new funding measures to support Live industry

Australian : new funding measures to support Live industry
Evelyn Richardson, the chief executive of the peak body for Australia live entertainment industry, said: 
“COVID-19 has caused significant damage and disruption for our industry: performing arts companies and venues closed overnight; performers, production and technical staff and crews were without work or stood down; and companies and organisations were left with no alternative sources of revenue.
Live Performance Australia, which earlier this month proposed a A$345m plan to support the arts and entertainment industry, has also welcomed the new funding measures that aim to help the sector recover over the next 12 months.
