About Us

Chronology Arts is proud to represent some of Australia’s finest, most innovative and gifted artists.

We specialise in working with composers and collaborative performers, from established international talent to rising stars.

Central to Chronology Arts’ mission is to drive and support the production of Contemporary Art Music in Australia, and to promote it both national and internationally.

Chronology Arts supports new music artists' careers.

The business is a not-for profit company limited by guarantee. The not-for-profit structure allows access to funds otherwise unavailable to for-profit business, allowing Chronology Arts' collective of artists more flexibility whilst resourcing their projects.
