The Aboriginal Art Association of Australia (AAAA) serves and represents artists, individuals and organisations that produce, promote, protect or support Aboriginal art and the cultures that create and nurture that art.
The AAAA’s goal is to ensure a vibrant, healthy, sustainable and inclusive Aboriginal visual arts industry.
The AAAA recognises above all that the industry depends upon the creative genius of Aboriginal artists producing cultural material and that the long term viability of the industry depends upon that culture remaining strong.
The AAAA seeks to provide the industry with and to promote a nationwide safe and ethical environment in which Aboriginal artists are free and safe to ply their trade for fair and prompt remuneration, free from exploitation, bullying and coercion.
The AAAA operates as an advocate for all industry participants, whether artist, gallery or dealer and whether independent or art centre affiliated.
The AAAA provides Members with an ideal mechanism to expand their contacts, remain abreast of and discuss issues relevant to the industry and grow their businesses.
Clause 3 of the Constitution lists in full the Associations purposes and objects.
The Aboriginal Art Association of Australia Limited was formerly called The Australian Indigenous Art Trade Association
