Kumuwuki / Big Wave, the 2012 Regional Arts Australia National Conference, is presented through a partnership with Regional Arts Australia, Country Arts SA and the Alexandrina Council.
Regional Arts Australia is the key national body representing the broad and complex interests and concerns of those working with and for the arts in regional, rural and remote Australia. As an advocate, Regional Arts Australia has achieved significant results over the last three years in winning better recognition and support for the enormous contribution that regional arts make to the cultural, economic and social wellbeing of the nation. As a project initiator and manager, Regional Arts Australia has become an important partner in equipping regional artists, arts workers and communities to meet the special needs and challenges that accompany arts practice, arts promotion and audience development in the regional and rural sectors.
Country Arts SA is one of South Australia's largest arts organisations with an annual turnover of some $3 million a year and a workforce of over 64 full time equivalent employees. Country Arts SA provides arts services across regional South Australia through a range of arts programs and initiatives, through the management of performing and visual arts venues, and the provision of grant funding which supports the creative endeavours of communities and individuals.
Alexandrina Council is a thriving community which covers an area of 1,800 square kilometres on the picturesque Fleurieu Peninsula south of Adelaide. The area is supported by diverse industries including tourism, viticulture, general farming and dairying, fruit production, manufacturing, engineering and boat building, and is close enough to Adelaide to make it an easily accessible and desirable holiday and tourist destination.
Arts SA is a division of the South Australian Department of the Premier and Cabinet and the South Australian Government’s arts and cultural agency.
Australia Council for the Arts is the Australian Government's arts funding and advisory body, through its Community Partnerships Section.
The Regional Arts Fund is an Australian Government initiative supporting the arts in regional, remote and very remote/isolated Australia.
