80 years of Regional Arts Australia

For 80 years, Regional Arts Australia (RAA) has facilitated opportunities, increased access and provided support to celebrate Australian stories. 

In 1943, our founder, Miss Dorothy Helmrich OBE, saw a need to bring the arts to people living outside Australian metropolitan centres. Today, RAA ensures arts in regional Australia are embedded within all of governments plans. Our priorities are to strengthen practice through working across industry and policy sectors. 

In 2023, RAA is seeking core capacity funding to ensure it can continue to support contemporary practice across regional Australia.
