There's less than one month to go until NAVA's Future/Forward. Future/Forward will ignite the nation’s capital with timely collaboration on how best to advance rights, sustain incomes and develop practice in Australia today. The discussion has two primary aims:
To inform NAVA’s major revision of the Code of Practice for the Professional Australian Visual Arts, Craft and Design Sector.
To build artists’ confidence and expertise in negotiating their rights and advocating for their work.
This ambitious program will connect, inform and prepare artists and industry colleagues for impactful, inspirational sector development.
