Artists and musicians are welcoming a $175 million package from the government aimed as protecting the jobs of 90,000 people in the arts and music sectors.

The Prime Minister made the announcement in Napier on Friday, where she's spending the long weekend, announcing a jobseekers programme and four new employment funds for the cultural sector.
