Currency House is a not-for-profit association dedicated to stimulating, enriching and advancing the quality and enjoyment of the Australian performing arts.
Our mission is to assert the value of the performing arts in public life by research, debate and publication.
We do this by:
- Publishing Platform Papers, a quarterly essay series whose purpose is to stimulate informed debate on contemporary issues in the arts
- Presenting public discussions and forums on these issues
- Conducting breakfasts for the business community aimed at seeking common ground between the inspiration of the artist and the practical concerns of business management
- Publishing books on Australian cultural history that document the contribution of the performer to the building of Australian society and character
