ACPA: Aboriginal Centre for the Performing Arts


ACPA is a registered training organisation dedicated to the development of Indigenous performing artists. Here you will develop the skills, expertise and practical experience necessary to succeed in the Australian performing arts industry.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures have been maintained over time by a strong tradition of story-telling through performance – words, music and dance.  ACPA’s programs respect, support and build on that tradition, in the context of preparing students for employment in the broader Australian creative industries.
ACPA’s work contributes strongly to Council of Australian Government’s (COAG) Closing the Gap agenda in the key areas of:

  • Maintaining, valuing and strengthening Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures; and
  • Improving Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians’ levels of skills, training and employment.
