Oz Co and the Oz

Poor Melbourne artist Caz Guiney. She successfully goes through the funding hoops and whims of the Australia Council, only to then be accused of wasting taxpayer money:,5744,6505098%255E2702,00.html (URL valid to ~ 2 June only),5744,6503547%255E7583,00.html (URL valid 28 May only)

Well, I’m certainly no fan of the Oz Co – as far as I’m concerned, it’s just another machine run by, and for, baby boomers. But if anyone manages to break into it, good on ‘em.

And if The Australian is really suggesting that Oz Co grants be assessed by the commercial value, or R.O.I, they bring (or don’t), then the paper should shine its probing spotlight on all grant recipients, equally.
