Feral Arts

feral - adj: existing in a wild, uncultivated State

Feral Arts is a national community arts and cultural development (CACD) service organisation with a focus on:

  • Campaigns – leading the strategic and active engagement of the arts sector in national watershed issues.
  • Connectedness – improving the level and quality of communication and sharing, both within the arts sector and other with other sectors.
  • Capacity Building – enhancing the capacity of the arts sector to advocate and lead.

We take a leadership role in responding to national watershed issues for the arts sector and broader community. Digital storytelling and online communication through social media are key parts of our work.


We are passionate and fearless advocates for an arts ecology that values and respects the role of individual artists and small arts companies, and we work to ensure CACD remains at the forefront of policy and program development at all times.


Feral Arts respects the artistic and cultural rights of all people and we acknowledge Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders as Australia’s First Peoples and original cultures, and the proper starting point for arts and cultural development in this country.
