Country Arts SA’s vision is for artists and communities of regional South Australia to thrive through engagement with the arts, and be recognised as essential contributors to the nation’s cultural voice.
For 29 years, we have transformed the way the arts are made and engaged with in regional South Australia. We focus on engaging with and elevating regional Aboriginal Elders, artists and communities; being informed and led by regional South Australians; representing and reaching all South Australia’s diverse communities; and measuring, responding to and reducing our environmental impact.
Country Arts SA ensures people across each region have access to arts and culture by presenting shows and workshops for people of all ages at their arts centres in Mount Gambier, Renmark, Noarlunga, Port Pirie and Whyalla and in community-owned venues in other towns.
Working with galleries across the state to curate visual arts exhibitions and residency projects, visual artists’ work is showcased to state, national and international audiences. Country Arts SA also offers funding grants and professional advice to regionally-based artists and communities, enabling them to realise their own arts and cultural aspirations.
The work of Country Arts SA takes us across regional South Australia, so we see firsthand the impact arts and culture has in people’s everyday lives; the way it diversifies local economies and provides jobs for regional people and is essential to their communities, to their responses to climate change, to their wellbeing and sense of place.
