Since the Liberal Party came to power in Victoria industry within the Arts Community, and in particular the music industry, have faced savage budget cuts.
Martin Foley, the current Shadow Minister for the Arts, says Labor plans to restore the damage to the music industry created by the Liberal Party by restoring adequate and appropriate funding to once again get music in Victoria competitive both locally and on the world stage.
The Labor Party has a closer and trusted working relationship and understanding of the Australian Music Industry. In this interview with Noise11, Mr Foley talks about the structure of the planned Labor platform for music and how in government Labor will not only work with the industry but also each other across Education, Tourism and Technology to create a roadmap for the future of the industry.
Mr Foley has a knowledgeable understanding of the value the music industry brings to the state of Victoria and how, as a collection of small businesses, the music industry of Victoria can once again take its part as one of Victoria’s viable industries.
