“As part of this process, artsACT will also conduct a thorough analysis of the ACT arts sector and current and future needs to identify gaps, strengths and weaknesses,” Ms Burch said.

The members of the group are:

David Williams, Childers Group

Gavin Findlay, Music ACT

Joseph Falsone, Ainslie and Gorman Arts Centres

David Broker, Canberra Contemporary Art Space

Rosanna Stevens, researcher and writer, and
