Our Story

At Country Arts SA we believe access to the arts is a universal right and that all regional South Australians deserve a life rich in arts and culture.

As detailed in our Strategic Plan, we believe that the arts have the power to transform lives and are a catalyst for tourism, employment and economic development contributing to resilient and prosperous regional communities.

We recognise and respect that we are living and creating on Aboriginal lands and we are committed to working together to honour their living culture.

Country Arts SA is a dynamic arts organisation bringing the arts to life in regional South Australia. Regional artists, communities and partners inspire us to create opportunities for artists at every level to flourish and produce great art and provide regional South Australians the best possible arts experiences.

We support artists to develop their practice and make art. We produce great art that shares the stories of regional South Australia.

We present shows and workshops for people of all ages at our arts centres in Whyalla, Port Pirie, Renmark, Mount Gambier and Noarlunga and community owned venues in other centres.

We work with galleries across the State to curate visual arts exhibitions and residency projects as well as showcasing work of regional artists to state, national and international audiences.

We provide grants and professional advice to regionally based artists and communities enabling them to realise their arts and cultural aspirations.

We have a highly skilled, passionate and committed workforce, over 60% of which live and work in regional South Australia. It is the strength of our staff, partners and programs that enable us to be regarded as a national leader in regional arts.
