A Culturally Ambitious Nation

The Australia Council for the Arts is the Australian Government’s arts funding and advisory body. We deliver more than $200 million in funding for arts organisations and artists across the country. As a statutory authority, our powers and functions are set out in the legislation under the Australia Council Act 2013.

Strategic Plan

The Strategic Plan reflects an ambitious vision for the arts in Australia and is comprised of four goals:

  • Goal One: Australian arts are without borders
  • Goal Two: Australia is known for its great art and artists
  • Goal Three: The arts enrich daily life for all
  • Goal Four: Australians cherish Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander arts and culture
