New Zealand is set to join Australia’s Meeting of Cultural Ministers (MCM) as the first international member.
The announcement follows the annual Australia-New Zealand Leaders’ Meeting between Prime Minister Scott Morrison and New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern in Auckland on 22 February 2019.
At this meeting, Prime Minister Morrison welcomed New Zealand’s application to become an international member of MCM with leaders noting the strong collaborative relationship between the two countries in arts and culture.
New Zealand formally requested to join MCM in late 2018. Australian cultural ministers welcomed this approach and New Zealand will be formally appointed as a member at the next Meeting of Cultural Ministers, expected to be held in late 2019.
The MCM is an annual forum for arts and cultural leaders to discuss areas of significance and mutual interest to advance arts and culture policy objectives.
