The International Federation of Arts Councils and Culture Agencies (IFACCA) is the global network of arts councils and ministries of culture, with member institutions in over 70 countries.
Our vision is a world in which arts and culture thrive and are recognised by governments and peoples for their contribution to society.
The IFACCA Secretariat provides services, information and resources to member institutions and their staff - from senior executives and policy makers, to researchers, grant makers and administrators - as well as the wider community.
Our unique international network is collaborative, and geographically and culturally diverse. Our members are at the heart of the network and represent a range of institutions from ministries of culture and arts councils, to other agencies that are committed to public support of arts and culture. Our network connects members to international peers with a wealth of expertise, and the Secretariat serves members by ensuring that they can access current knowledge and information, latest practices and relevant resources to assist them in their work.
Our World Summit on Arts and Culture brings together leading policy makers, researchers, managers and practitioners from the arts and culture sector from around the world, to discuss issues of public support for the arts, culture and creativity. The World Summit is held triennially and is delivered in partnership with one of our National Member institutions. Previous Summits have stimulated international cooperation, learning and information exchange. The continuing success of this flagship event confirms its capacity to strengthen civil society, promote collaboration within and across sectors, and enable interaction between international peers.
