Jobs, careers on the line as 'Black Friday' cuts hit arts sector

The ABC's Lucy Carter reports (13.5.16) on newly announced cuts to the nation's arts sector, with the federal government taking away funding from scores of arts companies and organisations, after dramatically reducing the Arts Council's budget last year.

'More than 60 Australian arts companies that previously received Federal Government support have had their latest funding applications rejected, leaving a lot of them facing uncertain futures.

'Sixty-two small to medium-sized arts companies and organisations that had previously been funded by the Australia Council for the Arts have been told their applications for grants for the next four years have been rejected.

'While more than 40 new organisations have been given grants, industry insiders say today is the blackest of Black Fridays for the arts in Australia.'
