Country Arts SA is statutory corporation created by the South Australian government under the provisions of the South Australian Country Arts Trust Act (1992), for the purpose of delivering arts to regional South Australia. Responsibility for the organisation previously rested with Arts South Australia, but since late 2018 has come under the Department of the Premier and Cabinet.
In 2010, Country Arts SA established an Aboriginal Arts and Cultural Engagement program, and in 2018 it published its second "Stretch" Reconciliation Action Plan, Reconciliation Plan 2018-2020, vowing to "embed principles of self-determination to ensure Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people have a voice and play a crucial part in making decisions on all aspects of Country Arts SA".
The main aim of the organisation is to ensure that regional and remote communities in South Australia have access to the visual and performing arts as well as cultural development opportunities, so it both presents many types of artistic expression, through performance and exhibitions, as well as supporting local artists and performers.
