Our Art, Our Art Industry: Australian Indigenous artists talk art business. This project was funded by the Sidney Myer Fund. The Our Art, Our Art Industry project is a joint project of the National Association for the Visual Arts Ltd (NAVA), the Association of Northern, Kimberley and Arnhem Aboriginal Artists Inc (ANKAAA) and Desart. Vodcasts by David Pollock Films & Francine Chinn. NAVA and ANKAAA thank the following artists and art centres for making these vodcasts with us: Claude Carter and Mangkaja Arts Christine Yukenbari and Warlayirti Artists Gabriel Nodea and Warmun Art Carol Hapke and Agnes Armstrong and Waringarri Arts. From 2007 - 2009, artists from 28 Indigenous Art Centres and remote communities came together under the Our Art project to discuss and document art business, their Art Centres and the business relationships and concepts that were important to them. They considered how their art makes its way through the art market, often to a city-based or even international buyer, including the commercial transactions associated with that process. They discussed the relationships, processes and agreements they enter that help ensure that their Art Centre and their art practice is protected from exploitative conduct that could undermine the return to the artists, their career and the desired return to their families and community. These vodcasts are one outcome of these discussions.
