DescriptionSince its inception in 1964, the Fiji Arts Council (FAC) has been engaged in various activities to encourage and promote the works of our artists and craftspeople. The FAC coordinates national programmes and activities to develop and promote visual, performing and fine arts as well as traditional and contemporary craft. In expanding from its original role as a coordinating body for the presentations of overseas artists, the Council is playing an important role in the preservation, revitalization and promotion of living heritage and arts. Registered as a formal organization under the Charitable Trust Act the FAC receives a grant from government together with a service agreement annually. FAC has begun to provide a supporting role in organizing the cultural components of national events such as Fiji Day and cultural activities associated with international events. It coordinates Fiji's participation at regional and international festivals such as the Pacific Arts Festival, held every four years and the Melanesian Festival, first held in 1998 in the Solomon Islands. FAC maintains a database of local artists, craftspeople, cultural groups, musicians and dancers to assist in their promotion and development.
