Art is fundamental to our humanity and they have the power to positively change communities. Their social, educational and cultural benefits are truly remarkable. They enrich our lives and create positive experiences which never exclude, discriminate or judge against anyone. Their unmatchable powers are quickly being recognised by local government agencies and are increasingly being used to improve community health and wellbeing, reduce crime and nurture young and vulnerable citizens.
