We cooperate as an association to advance the practice of sculpture and the reputation and appreciation of sculpture and sculptors in the community. This is regardless of whether or not we make a living from sculpture and regardless of our preferred style or medium. To this end we support artists’ moral rights, we advocate a professional attitude to the production and presentation of work and encourage the artistic and intellectual stimulation of interaction amongst artists of all persuasions.

So What's NAVA Doing?

The National Association of Visual Artists is out there campaigning for our interests - and it can be hard to keep up with the issues identified - so to whet your appetite here is an extract from the first newsletter for the year:

We’re spending first sitting week in Canberra at Parliament House putting the case in back-to-back, one-on-one meetings with MPs across all major parties

In partnership with Museums & Galleries Australia, we’re hosting an advocacy priorities roundtable in Canberra with key national contemporary arts bodies

Just as we did with the 2018-2019 Federal Budget, we’ll scrutinise this year’s Budget in great detail, offering critical responses for a diversity of media to ensure that there’s a strong arts perspective in this national conversation

ACTION: We’ll start the year once again with #artsagenda, asking you to share what you’d like us to raise with MPs in those meetings.
