On May 14, Wide Angle Tasmania submitted the following paper to the Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development and Communications in response to the Media Reform Green Paper – Modernising television regulation in Australia, November 2020
Media release issued Sept 22
The Arts Minister Elise Archer announced on Sept 18 that “The Cultural and Creative Industries Act 2017 includes an independent system of peer assessment and expert advice in all funding decisions under Screen Tasmania and Arts Tasmania. However, all grant recipients have a responsibility to ensure they use funding appropriately and within the guidelines of the law. Accordingly, to maintain the integrity of this independent process, I have asked for the assessment process to be reviewed to ensure that illegal activities are not promoted or endorsed.”Read more
