We've collected over 2 million votes between 1-6 in federal elections and by-elections since we started in 2012, yet we're still without any representatives elected. In 2019, we’ve pivoted our approach.
We are not standing any further candidates in federal elections until we have created the grassroots state party structure we need first. We’re now placing state parties at the centre of our plans to change the future of Australia.
State parties, as independent entities, with their own registered roles and committees, will decide how to order their own finances once registered. As a result we have cancelled all paid federal subscription memberships. The future of the Arts Party movement is as a federation of state parties.
All memberships collected on this site will be used to register state-based parties as and when enough members are received. At that point members in that state will be contacted and given the opportunity to step into state leadership roles and forming the new party. Currently we have one state party (NSW), registered for local elections in 2021.
Below are of current membership levels broken down by state, with minimum registration targets:
|State||Current Members||Minimum Registration Target|
N.B. Realistically we will need at least 100 members over the minimum in order to register - all members submitted must be on the electoral roll at the address they supply in that state to be accepted.
So please join us on the journey to improve all our futures!
A political movement born from Arts Thinking and Action. Creativity and innovation must be protected and promoted!
Vote 1 Arts Party!
