The Institute for Professional Practice in Heritage & the Arts collaborates nationally and internationally with practicing heritage and arts professionals, cultural institutions, government agencies, private enterprise and other universities to address matters of professional practice and professional development within the heritage and arts sectors.

The Institute seeks to service the contemporary interests and professional development needs of individuals and organisations. The Institute coordinates a range of professional development activities that are made available to its members and partners. It also utilises its membership base to provide expertise on matters relating to professional practice.

The Institute is administered as part of the Research School of Humanities & the Arts at The Australian National University. Its operation is guided by a Board of eminent heritage and arts professionals.
