All Your Worth was a collaborative work by DRILL choreographers Joshua Lowe and Angela Barnard, and Liesel Zink from Tasdance. The work was a response to the Federal Government and Minster Brandis’ decision to cut funding from The Australia Council for the Arts, putting all independent artists and small and medium arts organisations, such as DRILL and Tasdance, at risk. When it comes to art, particularly that which is made within the community, ‘excellence’ is not the same thing as ‘valuable’. In All Your Worth we attempted to ask you to question your values, where you place value and how this affects us all.
