South Australia – Areas of focus for the nonprofit sector

3 main nonprofit areas

  •  Art/Cultural life
  •  Disability  
  •  Youth

“In 2007, almost $20 million was invested to the making of art in South Australia.”

As South Austrlia is kwnon as “the state of festivals and wine”, the main areas of the NPOs are related to the cultural sector. Some examples of this are the Contemporary Art Centre of South Australia and the famous one The History Trust of South Australia. This kind of trusts may be joined with other buildings like the National Motor Museum, Migration Museum, South Australian Maritime Museum or Queen’s Theatre in order to develop their programes and activities. 

In a minor percentage, there is a sector focused on the disability area. For instance, Arts Access SA organisation which mission consists in create opportunities for participation, employment, income generation and leadership for people with a disability in South Australia’s arts and cultural life. DIRC Directory details over 600 South Australian disability organisations and the services they offer. It also provides information about national disability organisations and peak bodies.
