On 10 August 2017 the House of Representatives Standing Committee on Indigenous Affairs announced an inquiry into the growing presence of inauthentic Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander 'style' art and craft products and merchandise for sale across Australia. The inquiry was referred by Minister for Indigenous Affairs, Senator the Hon Nigel Scullion.
The deadline has been extended and written submissions are now due Friday 3 November 2017.
NAVA will be submitting a response to the inquiry and urges the sector to get behind this issue.
The Committee will also be gathering information via two questionnaires.
