The International Federation of Arts Councils and Culture Agencies (IFACCA) is the global network of arts councils, ministries of culture and government agencies that advance arts and culture, with member institutions representing over 70 countries. Our members operate in developed and developing countries across Africa, the Americas, Asia, Europe, the Middle East, and the Pacific.
The IFACCA Secretariat oversees the Federation: it supports, connects and responds to the needs of members; creates opportunities for collaboration and exchange; and provides trusted leadership and intelligence on arts and culture in public life, for members as well as the wider international community.
Collectively we are committed to international dialogue and exchange, undertaken in a spirit of solidarity, inclusion, reciprocity, and mutual learning. The Federation represents plural voices and perspectives, unified in the belief that arts and culture are a public good – with the potential to further inclusive social transformation – to be shaped and accessed equitably by all peoples. As an international Federation, we respect national governance and commit to the promotion of the diversity of cultural expressions.
