In 2012-13 the estimate of expenditure of Victorian Government funds on Arts activities fell 18% to $192.1m. Driving this fall was a reduction in funded expenditure on Performing arts venues of $48.5m (down 48%) due primarily to the completion of capital projects. Despite the reduction, this category still accounts for the largest proportion (27%) of funded expenditure by the Victorian Government on Arts activities. Partially offsetting this was an increase in expenditure on Other Arts which rose by $8.5m (up 27%).
