Ethics, money & art

A public forum at Sydney College of the Arts discussing the ethics of money and art.

The ethics of arts support became a much debated topic when artists threatened to withdraw their participation in the 2014 Biennale of Sydney because of the business activities of a major donor in winning a contract to provide services to refugee detention centres. In May 2014, NAVA presented this public forum in partnership with Sydney College of the Arts (SCA) featuring Jo Holder, Tony Bond, Oliver Watts, Kelli McCluskey, and Phillip Wright.
