International Federation of Arts Councils and Culture Agencies
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. Their members operate in 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.
Their Membership comprises public institutions whose purpose is to advance arts and culture, through investment, policy and promotion. They have two types of members: National Members and Affiliates. National Members are committed to the public support of arts and culture through investment, policy and promotion at a national level, with each country able to be represented by one National Member. Affiliates, too, are committed to the public support of arts and culture, but they include sister institutions to existing National Members, intergovernmental bodies, and government agencies that operate at subnational levels including state, regional, provincial, and local government.
