National Arts and Culture Policy

Here’s an article from today’s Australian Age — equivalent of the NYTimes — talking about the Australian government getting ready to announce a major policy document related to the arts and culture:

Big Thinking Cultural Policy

Has anyone heard any current Republican Presidential candidate make any statement about arts and culture policy in the recent debates or in a campaign ad? Has anyone in their lifetime ever heard any politician in the U.S. ever talk about arts and culture policy? If not, why not?

    No, I’m pretty sure that none of the politicians were every pressuredto talk about arts so they never felt the need to bring it up. Plus, they are really interested more in the recession and how they plan to get out of it.

    I think Sarah Palin believes that the arts are a frivolous waste of the governement’s money (and our tax dollars) and that we should cut funding for the arts to help pay off the 14 trillion dollar debt currently have– basically, getting rid of the debt would be a better gift for future generations than exposing them to the arts.
