Tourism—event funding (Question No 942)

Mr Wall asked the Minister for Tourism and Major Events, upon notice, on 23 February 2018:

(1) In relation to funding for National Attractions in the ACT, what is the total amount of ACT Government funding provided for the (a) 2015-16, (b) 2016-17 and (c) 2017-18 financial years to the (i) National Library of Australia, (ii) National Gallery of Australia, (iii) Museum of Australian Democracy, (iv) National Archives of Australia, (v) National Museum of Australia, (vi) National Film and Sound Archive, (vii) Questacon, (viii) Old Parliament House and (ix) Royal Australian Mint.

(2) How much of the funding for each institution referred to in part (1), was allocated for a special exhibition or event.

Mr Barr: The answer to the member's question is as follows:

(1) Calculating the total funding provided across the whole of the ACT Government for the listed National Attractions, for the stated financial years potentially requires collation of an extensive amount of information ranging from investment in a major event to hiring of a meeting room, across a diverse range of departments. It is anticipated the majority of engagement occurs through the Economic Development Directorate through Tourism and Events. The information relating to these business units is detailed in question 2 below.

(2) The following information is collated with reference to funding provided by VisitCanberra through the Major Events Fund and from data provide by Events ACT in delivering major events such as Enlighten.
