Diversity Arts Australia (formerly Kultour) is driven by a huge ambition to build a creative sector reflecting the rich cultural diversity of Australia. Arts Front aligns with our current focus on research, advocacy and developing innovative artist-led models for diverse arts practice.

Despite Australia being one of the most culturally diverse countries in the world, CALD artists and stories are greatly under-represented in an industry dominated by Anglo-Celtic narratives.

It is rare to have the time to reflect upon our practice, to dream big and to enact the future that we want. Arts Front presents an opportunity to contribute by strategically working nationally with artists, producers, creators, leaders and communities to shape the future of arts in Australia which is inclusive and underpinned by culturally diverse artists and practices. This new way of thinking about advocacy recognises the powerful skills of artists in telling a story that can create a real impetus for change
