Arts ACTION was initiated thanks to funding from the Australian Government’s Building Better Regions Fund and the support of long-term partners.

It provides support and leadership development to creatives and artists. To increase capability, productivity and career opportunity, as well as practical frameworks to enable greater market reach and visual art sales. This program is a chance for creatives to build or fine-tune their individual business frameworks, increasing their potential and viability overall.

At Pop Up Art we continue to advocate for creatives to thrive, because this enriches our communities as a whole.
