The Australian government’s New Cultural Policy has gained increasing attention since it was released in January 30.

The five-year policy, titled Revive, will inject $286 million to revive Australia’s arts, entertainment and cultural sectors. 

The policy majorly impacts First Nations organisations in the arts industry, and Brisbane-based contemporary dance and choreography group, BlakDance, played an important role in shaping this policy.    

The Wire’s Aryana Mohmood spoke with co-CEO and Executive Producer of BlakDance Merindah Donnelly, to find out more.
