Advocacy & Campaigns

NAVA is actively involved in a number of areas of advocacy to improve the working environment for artists and arts organisations. We regularly undertake active campaigns to bring about change or pioneer new policies for the sector and encourage input and participation from our members.

Artist Files

The Artist Files are an ever growing collection of interviews with our professional members. Find out what inspires them, how their careers have developed and learn from their experiences.


NAVA is a membership organisation, as a member you have the right to vote at our Annual General Meeting as well as nominating for and electing members of our board.


NAVA membership connects you to the art community. It provides inside news about what’s happening in the sector nationally and access to expert advice and a range of professional development tools and career opportunities.
