Mr J.H.D. DAY replied: […] It is important that our major cultural institutions appeal to the wide range of population and age and various interests of people in Western Australia. There are two examples of how that is being achieved at the moment. One is at the Western Australian Museum in Perth, which is currently presenting Nick Cave: The Exhibition, which is obviously about the life, times and creativity of Nick Cave, who is a wonderful singer, as many members will know.

Mr D.A. Templeman: You’d make a great mime.

Mr J.H.D. DAY: I suggest that the member visit the exhibition because I am sure he would find it of interest.

Mr M. McGowan: Name one song.

Mr J.H.D. DAY: The Ship Song. The member should listen to it; he might enjoy it.

Mr M. McGowan: Name two songs.

Mr A.J. Carpenter: Into My Arms is the next one. It’s very good.

Mr J.H.D. DAY: That is good to hear. I will come back to that. I can see a developing interest in this exhibition.

The exhibition was put together by the Arts Centre in Melbourne. Its tour around some cities of Australia, not all, is supported by Visions of Australia, an Australian government program. I appreciate the contribution of the Australian government for funding that program.

Mr D.A. Templeman interjected.

The SPEAKER: Minister, I think we have some bad seeds. If the minister is able to finish his comments, I would appreciate it.

Mr J.H.D. DAY: You are well informed, Mr Speaker.
