Australian arts: strategic directions

The Australia Council for the Arts is the Australian Government’s arts funding and advisory body. Our vision is to enrich our nation by supporting the practice and enjoyment of the arts through:

  • funding and supporting Australian artists and arts organisations
    to create excellent art
  • preserving, maintaining and developing the distinctive features
    of Australian culture
  • ensuring that all Australians have the opportunity to engage with
    the arts and enjoy a rich cultural life
  • shaping a future in which the arts play a meaningful and vital
    role in the everyday lives of Australians and their communities.
    We achieve this by:
  • investing in artistic production and the development of
    artistic practice
  • supporting the presentation of distinctive Australian cultural
    work, nationally and internationally
  • promoting understanding, enjoyment, participation and
    appreciation of the arts
  • developing the capacity of Australia’s creative arts sector
  • providing policy development, research, promotional and
    advisory services.
