The ABC was all over the arts this week as it launched a new arts website and held the “Revealing the Arts” conference in Sydney. The event included much fanfare about their new social media connectivity and partnership with the Australia Council. The website will a portal for both the arts programs on the ABC as well other arts content from all genres. This seems to be part of a larger push by the Federal Government and the Government 2.0 project to get government organisations to get filter their content through “younger” eyes. Let hope these programs increase creative production and build relationships rather than just present what we already have. That being said they are a lot prettier than previous government websites!
