Home - The Arts Party Arts Thinking. Creative Action. Political Change.


The Arts Party exists to encourage a more creative, communal and educated life for us all.
To encourage tolerance, happiness and health!

We believe Australia's greatest resource is Australians themselves. Investing in minds, not mines and protecting the environment, while promoting evidence-based solutions to the challenges we face - helping us all to achieve our goals and fulfill our potential. Now there's a plan for the future!

Candidate Callout - NSW Local Elections 2021

We are currently accepting applications for Arts Party candidates to stand in their local council elections on 4th September. If you would like to talk with us about being a candidate, fill out this form now.

Why the Arts and what have we already achieved? Read more here.

We've collected over 2 million votes between 1-6 in federal elections and by-elections since we started in 2012, yet we're still without any representatives elected. In 2019, we’ve pivoted our approach.

We are not standing any further candidates in federal elections until we have created the grassroots state party structure we need first. We’re now placing state parties at the centre of our plans to change the future of Australia.

State parties, as independent entities, with their own registered roles and committees, will decide how to order their own finances once registered. As a result we have cancelled all paid federal subscription memberships. The future of the Arts Party movement is as a federation of state parties.

All memberships collected on this site will be used to register state-based parties as and when enough members are received. At that point members in that state will be contacted and given the opportunity to step into state leadership roles and forming the new party. Currently we have one state party (NSW), registered for local elections in 2021.

Below are of current membership levels broken down by state, with minimum registration targets:

State Current Members Minimum Registration Target
ACT 66 100
NSW 815 750
NT 13 100
QLD 779 500
SA 111 100
TAS 131 100
VIC 347 500
WA 70 100
N.B. Realistically we will need at least 100 members over the minimum in order to register - all members submitted must be on the electoral roll at the address they supply in that state to be accepted.

So please join us on the journey to improve all our futures!
