To kick-start consultation for our major revision of the Code of Practice, NAVA and research partners from RMIT School of Arts are hosting a week of one-hour conversations from Monday 22 to Thursday 25 June, at 1pm and 3pm.

Let’s start with some broad, big-picture questions to inform the development of key discussion papers that will guide deeper work through focus groups, interviews and further research over the coming months.

We invite Artist and Organisational Members, colleagues and stakeholders to contribute your experience and insight to these discussions. In the case of Organisational Members, you may like to share this invitation with different members of your teams based on their areas of expertise. 

We invite you to take an active part in shaping the Code of Practice. To join the NAVA Code please register your interest below for as many of the following sessions as you wish:

Each session will open with two 5min guest presentations about a project, an experience, or way of working, offering provocations for the discussion. We’ll announce those guests ahead of the sessions. Each conversation will focus on different areas of the Code.

Focus areas such as fees and wages will be considered in next stages so as to be informed by this work. 

In online sessions with a large group, we have the capacity to break into small groups for discussion that can then be brought back to the group. 

The Code of Practice for the Professional Australian Visual Arts, Craft & Design Sector sets the national best practice standards for the sector, providing a set of practical and ethical guidelines for the conduct of business between art, craft and design practitioners and galleries, agents, dealers, retailers, buyers, sponsors and partners, commissioners, employers and the managers of residencies, workshops, competitions, prizes and awards, and more.
