Our Membership comprises public institutions whose purpose is to advance arts and culture, through investment, policy and promotion. We have two types of members: National Members and Affiliates. National Members are committed to the public support of arts and culture through investment, policy and promotion at a national level, with each country able to be represented by one National Member. Affiliates, too, are committed to the public support of arts and culture, but they include sister institutions to existing National Members, intergovernmental bodies, and government agencies that operate at subnational levels including state, regional, provincial, and local government.
The IFACCA Board comprises a group of committed leaders in arts and culture who meet at least twice each year to oversee the good governance and sustainability of the Federation in keeping with its Constitution; to shape its strategic vision and direction; to consider expressions of interest for membership; and to guide and inform the work of the Secretariat to ensure it delivers on the IFACCA strategy.
The IFACCA Secretariat comprises a small team of committed staff who apply their knowledge and expertise to execute the IFACCA Strategy and meet its objectives, manage programmes and services, and ensure the smooth administration of the organisation.
Our shared vision is a world in which arts and culture thrive and are recognised by governments and peoples for their manifold contribution to society. The purpose of the Secretariat is to support and engage members; to forge platforms for collaboration and exchange; to be a trusted source of intelligence; and to lead global thought for arts and culture in public life.
The Constitution of the International Federation of Arts Councils and Culture Agencies was ratified at the inaugural general assembly 23 November 2003. It is available in English, French and Spanish.
In addition to working with our members, we work with a number of partners to promote and deliver our activities.
