Vibrant and prosperous self-governing local communities, where residents have every chance to connect, learn and grow through public cultural and creative experiences.
We started in 2014, as a new political movement inspired by the Arts thinking & action, placing people, collaboration, creativity and co-operation at the centre of our agenda.
There’s no major party politics for us, no factions, no ideologies, no nonsense! We put people and principles first, encouraging creative, scientific and evidence-based ideas that improve the best quality of life for as many people as possible.
We share our policy ideas with all parties and encourage their adoption. We work with all sides of politics to help create a better tomorrow for all Australians.

Why The Arts?
PEOPLE FIRST ALWAYS
We see Australians as the most important asset Australia has.
Investing in us is the best investment possible.
Let’s expand our minds not our mines!
A COMMUNITY VOICE
The Arts is built on inspiration, imagination and cooperation. What better foundation for a voice dedicated to helping define the future of your local community?
inclusive & collaborative
The Arts by their nature are inclusive and potent in shared emotional experiences and teaching the value of acceptance and tolerance in our societies.
ACCESSIBLE CREATIVITY FOR ALL
The Arts inspire, inform, entertain and challenge us, to look at our world in different ways, to reassess our positions, to empathise and connect with others. We build communitoes and tolerance through sharing creative activities.
There is no Planet B. We are 100% in support of reducing and even eliminating carbon release. Obviously the problem is bigger than any single council area, but we will always support local environmental solutions to local problems.
