Help us create genuine change in the Australian arts and creative sector

 

We need your help to continue fostering progressive change in the creative arts landscape. Here’s how we’ve been doing it so far.

– 100,000+ people accessed our free online resources, including the Creative Equity Toolkit
– 5000+ creative practitioners participated in our training programs and seminars
– 228+ artists commissioned, including 68 artists as part of the ‘I Am Not A Virus’ project

Last year, we supported and created opportunities for artists during a time of strife. Our Stories From the Future Project has produced 200+ workshop participants; 12 anthology writers; 4 filmmakers; 3 podcast producers; 10 citizen journalists. We commissioned 68 artists to combat anti-Asian racism through the I Am Not A Virus project, and these works ended up being exhibited widely in Sydney and Melbourne.

We also advocated strongly for a fairer and more equitable sector, through practical building blocks. Our Fair Play Project has core audiences and artists of 200 participants; 600 participants at 2 x symposia and masterclasses.

At Diversity Arts, we want to continue working with CALD artists and arts organisations to on projects that tackle pressing issues that impact CALD communities as they come up.

Give today and help us foster progressive change in the creative sector.

 

At Diversity Arts we’re incredibly ambitious for cultural change, but the scope of our work can be huge and isn’t going away in a hurry.

One tenet of leading a non-profit organisation is having to constantly canvass for funding. Though this is ongoing, I believe a more important aspect of my role is to develop, serve and maintain relationships with our growing community.

The labour that DARTS undertakes year after year is sustained due to the unity, partnerships and leadership across communities,organisations and activists like you, and we are truly grateful.

This collective effort means we have been able to do the work! This year alone, we’ve delivered free and subsidised training, artist showcases, talks, research, two seasons of the Colour Cycle podcast, and commissioned reviews and works from artists.

We believe fundraising is first and foremost about our ties with our donors, allowing us to understand your passions, interests and needs. In turn, as donors you help us change this country with the work we are doing. DARTS is the bridge between your desire to equal the playing field in Australia’s arts and creative sector and having that need fulfilled.

In solidarity,
~Lena Nahlous, CEO, Diversity Arts Australia
