The protocols were reviewed in early 2010. The review found that the protocols were generally well received and assists artists and organisations to understand their responsibilities, rights and obligations when working with children. Following the review, some amendments have been made to clarify the intent of the protocols and make it easier for people to understand their responsibilities and comply with the requirements. Major changes made were: - in addition to the protocols outlining the requirements when depiction anyone under 18 years in works, exhibitions and publications, the revised protocols now include the requirement of obtaining parental consent for working with children under the age of 15 years - the costs for obtaining classification from the Classification Board as required can now be made at no cost - flowcharts are now available to guide necessary steps to comply to the protocols The complete revised protocols are available at www.australiacouncil.gov.au Arts Marketing Summit vodcasts available online Australia Council for the Arts June 2010 Recently, from 15-17 June the Australia Council for the Arts hosted their 6th Arts Marketing Summit in Brisbane, inviting more than 200 arts marketers from all over Australia to participate in this event.
