Vitae Veritas (VV) is a not-for-profit arts company based in Melbourne, founded by Nilgün Güven, a Turkish- Australian producer, director, artist and culture agent, whose ethos and practice is concerned with the intersectionality of human rights, inclusion & access, aesthetic innovation and creative production.

At the centre of VV’s work we champion people, their creative practice and goals and explore the role of artistic experimentation and how this directly informs co-designing accessible creative and aesthetic innovations and strategies for collaboration.

We advocate for equitable access to arts and culture participation opportunities where leadership and involvement of diverse artists, individuals and community members are at the heart, and aim to increase critical recognition, employment and funding opportunities for artists with disability and raise their profile in the arts and broader community.

VV’s work extends to different sector and community cultural development projects and initiatives that contribute to and expand contemporary arts practice.

We play an important role in delivering tailored training, professional development and capacity-building programs, providing advice and support to individuals and organisations, enhancing artist and audience development, providing high quality access services and encouraging innovation in artistic and cultural programming for disabled, Blind and vision impaired artists, audiences and communities of interest.

Vitae Veritas is the proud home of Fog Theatre (1991-present) and Sparc Theatre (2004-present), and supporting numerous disabled and neurodivergent artists through our Mentoring Programs; and being one of the main providers of audio description, tactile tours and associated training/capacity-building programs within the performing and 
visual arts creative industries across metro and regional Victoria, and interstate.
