Following hot on the heels of our first electoral outing, winning almost 2% of the vote in the North Sydney By-Election, we're releasing a list of eight preselected candidates for the federal election in 2016.
"We're excited by the calibre of the applicants we've had. We're really happy to be announcing this great list of candidates, ready to represent and encourage the cultural life of every Australian."
The candidates announced today will stand for a range of Senate and House of Representatives seats around the country, in the 2016 Federal election.
"The people of Australia deserve a real choice - and we're here to give them one. The Arts Party is here to bring fresh ideas to the table. We're here to talk about creating a fairer, brighter more prosperous future for every Australian"
"The Arts Party isn't just about Arts funding. We're about building stronger community, creating the knowledge nation and encouraging creativity and innovation in business and industry. Arts Party policies are about the long-term future of this country, the economy and a better, fairer way of life."
We'll be releasing our first policy document in January 2016 - ready for the run-up to the next Federal Election - and ready to take on the major parties, in what is shaping up to be a defining time for us as a Party.
