Nexus Arts is a leader in intercultural artistic practice. Throughout our history we have focused on creating opportunities for artists from different backgrounds to connect, intersect and collaborate, and to explore the notion of interculturalism in Australian arts. We strive to foster excellence in contemporary arts by supporting culturally diverse and First Nations artists with development programs and presentation opportunities.

At Nexus Arts, we want you to experience the best contemporary art possible, and that means diversity. As Australians, over half of us have at least one parent born overseas and nearly a quarter of us speak a language other than English at home, yet only 10% of professional artists and 10% of arts leaders are from a non-English speaking background. That can only mean that we’re missing out.

The work we do is vital. Nexus has a reputation for sector-leading, dynamic work. We support more than 100 Australian artists annually through inventive programs such as the Nexus Live concert series, Interplay music development program, Gallery exhibition program, and studio residencies. We commission collaborative intercultural work which offers supported creation and promotes artistic risk-taking.

Funding for the arts is always uncertain, and any money that you give now will help to ensure that Nexus Arts can continue to support our local artists. It will make sure that our audiences have access to extraordinary work from across the nation. It will allow intercultural conversation to continue.

All donations are 100% tax deductible and go directly to supporting our presentation and artist development programs. Give $5. Give $5000. We don’t mind. It all makes a difference

Our vision is that Australian contemporary arts truly represent our intercultural society, promoting social cohesion through diversity and excellence of practice. Your donations will help us realise our vision.
