Summary

This publication sets out protocols to guide non-indigenous people in their relationships with indigenous artists and communities, and to assist indigenous artists in defining their rights.

"The art of Indigenous Australia has become an important element of the Australian arts environment. Visual art forms continue to play a leading role, providing a visible Indigenous presence in many and diverse contexts. As Indigenous involvement in the visual arts sector expands, addressing cultural exchange and diversity of approach becomes more challenging. [...] Appropriate ways of working within the Indigenous sector are indicated in the protocol and legal sections of this document. Other sections provide background information and an historical and cultural context for contemporary Indigenous visual arts practice in Australia." -- page 7.
