Artsource + NAVA
Artsource works with the National Association for the Visual Arts (NAVA) and supports its role in protecting and promoting the professional interests of the Australian visual arts.
In 2016 NAVA and Artsource supported the National Day of Action on Friday 17 June to protest the federal government’s $300 million cut to the arts and cultural institutions.
S2M: The economics of Australia’s small-to-medium visual arts sector
In February 2017 NAVA released an economic study of Small to Medium businesses.
Artsource contributed to the survey for this report and features as the service organisation case study page 80. The report reiterates the importance of the arts in local, state and national economies and the need to support an arts infrastructure to ensure that all Australians have opportunities to experience and participate in the arts.
NAVAs current campaign on behalf of artists, is Fair Pay for Artists to gain recognition of a group of rights for artists and other arts professionals, in light of recent evidence of reduced opportunities due under funding of arts institutions.
