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.

What is NAVA doing in these changing times? 

In keeping with 2020’s theme of change and expecting the unexpected, the NAVA team has a new profile and a new home – be assured though: we are focused on these turbulent times, the commitments we’ve made, and navigating the best outcomes we can for our Members and the sector.

At the end of last week, I stepped into the role of Acting CEO here at NAVA. Esther Anatolitis was warmly farewelled on 20 August after three impactful years as our leader. She will of course be missed but has left us with vision and inspiration and we wish her well in her next chapter. As the team and I continue our collaborative work on revising the Code of Practice, NAVA is also embarking on its next multi-year strategic planning cycle. It’s an exciting time to think strategically about the organisation’s vision, priorities and next leadership model.

NAVA Survey & Strategic Plan

So much has changed since NAVA launched its Strategic Plan 2018-2020 – an incredible amount happening in the last 9 months alone! We have many priorities to rethink as NAVA embarks on developing its next strategic plan. Importantly, NAVA launched a survey a couple of days ago to hear from you – our Members and subscribers – about what you want from NAVA and the best role we can play to address the challenges and opportunities facing the sector more broadly. 

The survey is being conducted by independent research agency NSF Consulting and should only take 5-10 minutes to complete. All your responses will remain confidential and no results will be attributed to any one individual in final reporting. NSF Consulting is a member of The Research Society and adheres to all relevant Privacy Laws.
