Our member institutions represent over 70 countries and operate in developed and developing countries across Africa, the Americas, Asia, Europe, the Middle East, and the Pacific. Our membership comprises public institutions whose purpose is to advance the 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.
