First Nations and CALD artists impacted by COVID: report

A new report launched this week by Diversity Arts Australia¬† called ‘Lost Work 2.0’ shows most First Nations and Culturally and Linguistically Diverse artists and organisations were severely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The report is an updated version of a survey conducted in 2020.

It also shows racism increased towards First Nations and CALD creatives, with more than 72 per cent of the respondents believed it got worse in a COVID context.
