As budgets are released by Governments in NZ and Aus it makes me wonder if our Government in the Cook Islands will honor their statements and promises when they first came to office that they would actively assist and develop the Creative Industry nothing yet folks and we are 2 years down the path!!!!! Hmm more political BS - Tired of waiting guys how about you actually get behind creativity instead of rolling twee statements off your lips and falling for any foreign show pony that works in your door that can promise you stars and delivers a mess - Trust your own creatives ae!
I don't know what about this take a look a what other Govt's do with their Creative industries, Arts Agencies, set funding, tax breaks, etc you don't need to reinvent the wheel - JUST GET A WHEEL!!!!!!!
It is proven that arts and the creative industries bring wealth build job opportunities, increase GDP, educate and build communities, develop innovation and that isn't even talking about the fact that they also preserve maintain and create history and culture.
So how about it Cook Islands Government - are you capable of leading?
