DARTS provides brokerage and support for the arts sector, CaLD artists, government, media and others. We advocate for critical engagement and commitment to diversity in programming, staffing, leadership and audiences, and support for non-Western practice. Help us to continue to make this fundamental, sustainable and transformative change.
Culturally diverse Australians make up 38% percent of the overall population and yet systemic discrimination, tokenism and misrepresentation continue to create barriers within the arts and cultural sectors.
As Australia’s leading national voice for advancing cultural diversity across all arts practice areas, DARTS’ work is critical and urgent. But we cannot do it alone.
Diversity Arts Australia need your help in continuing to support and amplify the diverse voices in our community. Without core funding we rely solely on the financial support of people like you to help us continue to advocate for equity and inclusion.
We do this through professional development, mentorships, symposia, consultancy, knowledge-sharing, policy advice, blueprints and leadership initiatives.
