WHO IS ARTS CAPITAL?
Arts Capital is a non-profit membership organisation established in 2016 to respond to the needs of artists. Arts Capital consists of a highly motivated and experienced team that has taken on the challenge to create an alternative economy for the arts sector. Our artists are often the most neglected stars in our society.
Despite the value and impact of the arts sector, the landscape is marred by artists remaining economically, socially and politically marginalised.
Varied efforts have been embarked on to address the various social-economic and systematic issues of the sector by private, public and other NGO organisations. With the best of intentions, the impact of these efforts have been diluted and often not sustained.
Arts Capital has been established by a highly motivated team of individuals who want to achieve the following:
-Build a legacy organisation and home for artists.
-Develop a system to eradicate poverty in the artist community.
-Contribute to meaningful and sustainable job opportunities for artists.
-Influence the political framework to protect and advance artists and the arts.
-Become a strong voice for the arts industry.
-Ensure holistic wellness for our artists.
