Art Pharmacy Consulting’s aspiration is to help you achieve your vision of place through art and culture.

Our aim is to constantly champion people-centric creative projects that are daring, playful, surprising, and relevant to place and community.

Through our strategy, cultural curation and implementation, we support Art Pharmacy Consulting’s founding philosophy: to support local and international creative practitioners by connecting clients with creative ideas that provide genuine opportunity, while making our cities better places to live, work and play.

We strive to be ethical and fair in our treatment of artists and creative professionals, and to be transparent and independent in our dealings with clients and collaborators
