Using arts and culture for social transformation

 

Further Arts is a charitable association based in Port Vila, Vanuatu – furthering Vanuatu music, media, dance and culture whilst creating and providing an alternative view of development.

 

Our Mission

To develop and promote Vanuatu artists and musicians, their products, and other cultural activities both within Vanuatu and overseas.

Further Arts’ main objective is to empower ni-Vanuatu to develop long-term social and commercial enterprises in the industries of creative arts, communications and agriculture that are culturally, socially, environmentally and financially sustainable. It aspires to broaden its presence across the South Pacific. Further Arts is led by Ni-Vanuatu and Oceanian women.
