A new report launched this week by Diversity Arts Australia  called ‘Lost Work 2.0’ shows most First Nations and Culturally and Linguistically Diverse artists and organisations were severely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The report is an updated version of a survey conducted in 2020.

It also shows racism increased towards First Nations and CALD creatives, with more than 72 per cent of the respondents believed it got worse in a COVID context.
