Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from Australian Arts Review

Merry Christmas and a Happy New YearAustralian Arts Review would like to wish you a very Merry Christmas and a happy and safe New Year.

I would like to thank everyone who has continued to support us over the past 12 months. From the many artists, publicists, producers, venues, and you, the reader – without your support, Arts Review wouldn’t exist.

In particular, I would like to thank our small team of reviewers – Michele-Rose Boylan, Craig Dalglish, Tahney Fosdike, Patricia Maunder, Anne-Marie Peard, Gavin Roach, Betty Samis, Paul Selar, Bill Stephens OAM, Daniel G. Taylor, Guy Webster and Jason Whyte for their support, dedication and commitment.

In 2023, we celebrated our 10th Anniversary. Our readership continues to grow and we managed to publish 18% more posts than 2022. For the second year running, Arts Review was awarded Best Online Performing & Visual Arts Publication at the Australian Enterprise Awards.

Already 2024 is shaping up to be a very exciting year, with a number of major musicals, large scale events and festivals happening around the country. A number of significant visual arts exhibitions continue throughout Summer.

Arts Review will continue to support the professional, independent and emerging performing and visual arts sectors through editorial coverage and reviews. Our ever popular On the Couch series will also return.

Arts Review will also be introducing a monthly newsletter in mid-January – sign up here if you would like to receive some monthly arts goodness!

Arts Review will be taking a short break over the Festive Season and will return on Monday 8 January 2024 – though look out for a couple of special features we will publish in early January.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
