Public consultation forums will be held across Australia to gather more feedback on the draft Indigenous Australian Art Commercial Code of Conduct.
The draft code of conduct is designed to strengthen fair and ethical trade in the Indigenous visual art industry. It specifies a set of minimum standards for dealers, agents and artists, and defines terms of trade, rights and responsibilities for the sale and management of artworks.
A series of public forums will be held throughout April and May 2009 in order to find out more about the views of the art industry and general public.
Anyone interested in having their say on the draft code and the issues around exploitation in the Indigenous art industry are invited to attend.
