The peak body protecting and promoting the Australian visual arts sector

Best Practice: Public Art Commissioning || Melbourne

A forum and roundtable with artists, policy makers and planners around best practice in public art, 12 - 3pm 26 Nov 2018 at RMIT in Melbourne. 

This is the second public art commissioning consultation held by NAVA. This time in Melbourne.

This discussion is part of ongoing consultation with members and the sector to inform a major revision of the Code of Practice. NAVA's Code of Practice is both a record and a benchmark of best practice across the Australian visual arts including legal, ethical and financial business practices, as well as thorough arts industry guidelines.


Delegates discuss the recurring issues for commissioning art in the public space; the benefits of sector wide best practice guidelines; the obstacles for their implementation; and recommendations for the industry.
