We’ve asked 3 questions of the candidates for mayor and councillor at the current KI Council election:
Dear council candidate
The Art Museum of Kangaroo Island, is a visionary and adventurous proposal which would reveal Kangaroo Island art to the world and draw world art to Kangaroo Island. For more information about the value of AMKI for Kangaroo Island, please see the AMKI Business Case.
Arts and cultural tourism is the strongest growing sector of global tourism and tourism plays a major role in the Kangaroo Island economy. The wellbeing benefits of the arts in practice and consumption are also clearly documented – benefits the fire-affected community of Kangaroo Island will continue to need.
The Art Museum of Kangaroo Island committee would appreciate candidates’ responses to these questions:
1. Do you believe that Council should be an active supporter of and advocate for the arts on Kangaroo Island?
2. Do you support the community-based Art Museum of Kangaroo Island proposal?
3. Do you support AMKI being built near Kingscote on Lot 460 Seaview Road overlooking the Bay of Shoals.
Here is a summary of their answers. Their answers in full are here.
