Aanguku Arts and Culture Aboriginal Corporation
(Ku Arts)

 

Aṉanguku Arts and Culture Aboriginal Corporation (Ku Arts) is an Aboriginal owned and governed arts support organisation. It was formed by the artists of the Aṉangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara (APY) Lands in the far northwest of South Australia in 1998 and incorporated in 2002. The organisation is governed by an Indigenous Board and Independent non-member Directors, elected by artists across the state.

Ku Arts assists Indigenous artists and Art Centres by facilitating professional development opportunities, skills development workshops and providing information, forums and shared services on a regional and statewide level. We assist Art Centres with Indigenous governance support, project development, human resource management services, creating Indigenous training and employment opportunities and facilitating artistic and professional development workshops.

We present public events that reinforce the importance of cultural maintenance and the value of Indigenous culture to all Australians.

Aṉanguku Arts and Culture Aboriginal Corporation ICN3834 is listed on the Minister’s Register of Cultural Institutions, and registered with the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC) with charitable status. It has both Tax Concession Charity Status and Tax Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR) Status.

Ku Arts works closely with the Palya Fund, an ancillary trust established in 2007 to benefit artists through Aṉanguku Arts and Culture Aboriginal Corporation.
