Diversity Arts Australia’s (DARTS) vision is for a creative sector that reflects Australia’s cultural and linguistic diversity in our galleries, books, digital platforms, stages, screens, and the leadership of the arts sector. Aligned with the UNESCO Universal Declaration on Cultural Diversity (2001), our work is underpinned by human rights principles; we are committed to the belief that diversity of creative expression and participation is fundamental to an inclusive and sustainable arts sector and society.
DARTS provides brokerage and support for the arts sector, CaLD artists, government, media and others, via professional development, mentorships, symposia, consultancy, knowledge-sharing, policy advice, blueprints and leadership initiatives.
We advocate for critical engagement and commitment to diversity in programming, staffing, leadership and audiences, and support for non-Western practice. This is fundamental to sustainable and transformative change.
