What We Do

The Australia Council for the Arts is the Australian Government's arts funding and advisory body.

Our focus is on increasing the visibility of Australia's vibrant arts and culture, and recognising the evolving way that Australians make and experience art.  Our role is to support the unimagined along with the reimagined, the unknown and experimental along with the keenly anticipated.  We are a champion for Australian arts both here and overseas. We invest in artistic excellence through support for all facets of the creative process, and are committed to the arts being accessible to all Australians.



Acknowledgement of Country

The Australia Council for the Arts acknowledges the Traditional Owners of country throughout Australia and pays our respect to the Elders both past and present.
