Kulcha out of Business

February 18, 2014 by

A statement on Kulcha website homepage reads:

"After 30 years of promoting culturally diverse artists in Western Australia, the award-winning Multicultural Arts of Western Australia Inc (trading as Kulcha) will wind up its operations in early 2014 due to challenges in maintaining sustainable income levels. All upcoming events will now be cancelled effective immediately, including Kulcha’s nationally broadcast Oz Concert 2014 production during Harmony Week in March 2014. The Kulcha Board and Management deeply regrets this terrible outcome and we will shortly announce a meeting for Kulcha Members at a time and location to be advised."

The great line-ups all cancelled, OZConcert cancelled, a massive blow to the arts scene of the area or an indication that there was lack of support for the ethos behind the institution? Is the term 'multicultural' past its sell-by-date? 

What makes venues like the Loop Bar in Melbourne thrive?
