The Federation offers members access to a unique, collegial international community of peers and provides them with space to share knowledge and experience; forge partnerships; explore new ideas; learn from others; and receive support from people uniquely placed to understand their work, ambitions and challenges.

Our member institutions represent over 70 countries: they operate in developed and developing countries across Africa, the Americas, Asia, Europe, the Middle East, and the Pacific. We offer two types of institutional membership – National and Affiliate – and we welcome new members to stand with us, unified in global commitment to arts and culture.
