Australian Arts Council grants given to ‘ideologically-driven’ projects

The IPA's Bella d'Abrera says she doesn't know whether to "laugh or cry" at the "ideologically-driven" projects which received grants from the Australia Council for the Arts.

The projects included a cabaret artist who created a 'bum puppet' show featuring a drawing of the Prime Minister on her backside, a Chinese Australian poet who writes on toilet rolls about bodily fluids, and a feminist artist who uses knitting to tell histories of queer representation.

"The fact that this Coalition government has been in power for eight and a half years and it is still giving away thousands of taxpayers' dollars to these projects that are ideologically-driven, they're funny but not really meaning to be funny," Ms d'Abrera told Sky News host Peta Credlin. 

"And it's a really bad indictment on the current government."
