WE PROMOTE THE VALUE AND DIVERSITY OF THE ARTS FOR AUSTRALIAN CULTURE AND SOCIETY.
Documentaries help highlight the value and diversity of the Arts for Australian culture and society. As an art form themselves, documentaries show how the Arts allow audiences to engage with different perspectives and experiences, allow for social commentary, self-expression and personal development.
Last year in the midst of the Covid crisis, we partnered with Shark Island Institute and collaborated with The Sydney Morning Herald and The Age to deliver VoxDocs, a series of eight short films that explored what it was like to be a performing artist during the pandemic.
