As I’m sure you’ve seen on the site, we’ve made some profound changes to the way the Arts Party is structured. Things had to change. The very definition of madness is to repeat the same actions over and over, expecting a different result! We have been doing that too long. Essentially the Federal Arts Party is no more, replaced by something far more nimble and local. Australia is too big a country to have a movement like this run by a disparate federal central committee. I can tell you now it wasn’t working. Each state will soon have their own party and representation!

The devolution of power we’re undertaking is the best possible approach for the future of this movement. Sure we’re going to have teething troubles, but down the line letting go will make us stronger as a movement. So let’s get the registrations we need and the people to be the founders of state parties across the country!

Exciting Times!
