Changes to the AESRG subscriptions
The good and the bad news. After launching 12 months ago subscriptions to the AESRG website have been slowly increasing. Unfortunately too slow to keep the Australian Entertainment Safety Resource Guide as a commercial enterprise, the costs of keeping the guide up to date and accurate far outpaced the income from subscriptions.
In discussions with CX Magazine and Julius Grafton, who supported the project from the outset, it was agreed that rather than wasting the time, money and energy that went into creating the AESRG, we would open the website to the world by removing the paywall. Hopefully this will assist the Australian entertainment industry in maintaining a safe environment for workers and visitors alike. That is the good news.
The bad news is that because of these changes I will no longer be able to update the website or the information it contains. Maybe in the future we can look at a different business model to add and update the chapters but for now it will be a status quo.
Thank you for your support in the past, share the information on the website and stay safe!
