A Daley Labor Government will provide $100 million to establish a Western Sydney Cultural Fund.
The Western Sydney Cultural Fund will:
- Provide funds which may be used for programs and staffing; and
- Allocate funds to initiatives which reflect the cultures of Western Sydney’s Indigenous population and culturally and linguistically diverse communities.
Within six months of forming government, Labor will work with stakeholders through Create NSW to develop a Strategy for the Arts in Western Sydney.
In addition, a Daley Labor Government will work with the Western Sydney Performing Arts Centre at Rooty Hill – which will include a 2,000 seat theatre – to provide support to the Sydney Symphony Orchestra, the Australian Ballet, Opera Australia and other major arts companies to perform at this exceptional venue.
