I’m not really one to post petitions online, but this one is very important.. It will be a very sad day if this goes ahead!
Link here – Fund Art Education in NSW TAFE
On September 11 the Australian NSW government announced that it would stop funding art education in TAFE, leaving 4000 students without access to finishing their courses in 2013. TAFE Art courses are the main provider of art education in NSW, with many prominent artists getting their first 'hands on' training in TAFE. The withdrawal of funding will mean that only the wealthy will be able to afford private art education and NSW will suddenly find it no longer has emerging artists with skills coming through.
