AMPAG, as the representative body of Australia’s 28 major performing arts companies, gives its member companies a national voice and presence. It was formed in 1999 because the companies saw a critical need to work together on policy issues across their art forms including ones which affect artistic quality and cost/revenue dynamics.
AMPAG’s mission is to promote awareness of the contribution of major performing arts to the community and to ensure that these companies are adequately supported by the government. By doing so, AMPAG helps guarantee their long-term success and their accessibility to all Australians.
AMPAG’s work includes:
Government subsidy provides a base from which companies can leverage other support. Find out more at stretching government funding.
Government subsidy is as little as 15 per cent in some member companies and across AMPAG's 28 member companies constitutes just over one-third of revenue.
