Aboriginal Contemporary works alongside over 15 remote community run Art Centres. This ensures that when you purchase your artwork it is authentic and ethical.
Art Centres are Aboriginal-owned and controlled. They are professionally managed to ensure ethical support for the production, marketing and distribution of authentic Aboriginal art.
When an artwork is sold from an Art Centre, most of the funds go to the Artist and a small portion is invested back into the Art Centre for operational costs and community programs. Art Centres are dependent on the income they earn because government funding only pays for some of their operational costs.
Art Centres are a vital part of community life in remote Australia. As well as providing much needed income and employment opportunities they support the maintenance of culture in communities by providing a focus for family connection, social and cultural activities.
