ArtSound will be the leading community operated arts organisation in the ACT through the production, promotion and preservation of new and innovative arts outcomes.
ArtSound will use its resources, including member skills/experience and technology, to collaborate with ACT artists to produce enduring work.
ArtSound will also offer opportunities to artists to develop their skills in the production and promotion of their works.
ArtSound will use its community position as well as strengths as a broadcaster to promote the work of ACT artists to the wider community and to reinforce Canberra’s reputation as an arts capital.
ArtSound will use its unique technology advantage and public access to build the profiles of individual artists (including those within underrepresented groups) and their work.
In addition to broadcasting, ArtSound will also support arts activities and live events within the Manuka Arts Centre.
ArtSound is dedicated to the preservation of arts created in the ACT, and to that end will progressively digitise its sound archives, including all historically significant work recorded by ACT artists.
The work of new artists will also be recorded and retained for future generations. In addition to work specifically created in collaboration with ArtSound, this will include the capture of concerts, live events, exhibitions and other appropriate arts activities.
