Help Build Diversity Arts Australia

Only 8% of professional artists are from a non-English speaking background, according to the Australia Council. And in our TV drama, Screen Australia found that 82% of characters are Anglo Celtic, when they make up only 68% of the real Australian community.

Clearly, things are out of kilter. Diversity Arts Australia is working to build an arts sector that truly reflects our community. We believe increasing diversity in our creative sphere will build tolerance, empathy and connection within our community at a time in history when it feels like many forces are trying to pull us apart.
