Profiler 10 addresses the political. Keith Gallasch charges Arts Minister George Brandis' 2015 Arts Budget decisions with grand larceny, Caroline Wake drafts an Apology to the Survivors of Immigration Detention on behalf of a future enlightened Australian government, and we profile Queensland-based artists Igneous and Bonemap, and preview Igneous' FLUIDATA, which includes a live telematically linked performance by the two companies about water health and sustainability, with a focus on the creek systems of Queensland.

We also preview a forthcoming free public lecture by American art historian, critic and curator Amelia Jones, who specialises in feminist art, video art and body and performance art.

Plus: Castlemaine State Festival reviewed, the outcome of a RealTime writing intensive in Albury-Wodonga, and catch daily reviews of the Totally Huge New Music Festival and the Metropolis New Music Festival.

brandisISSUE: 2015 Arts budget
"For decades, national arts funding has operated successfully for the most part (and with regular restructurings) via the Australia Council with bipartisan support. Now we have the first major assault on the council, not just financially, but ideologically, one that allows a minister like none before to take the first step in reining in the Australia Council or extinguishing it and increasing his own power." Keith Gallasch provides a damning analysis of Senator George Brandis' recent budgetary decisions.
