Artists need NAVA

Support NAVA by filling in our annual Member survey, join or renew your Membership and/or make a tax deductible donation. 



Back your own horse

NAVA has a national network of over 50,000 Members, friends and followers. This means extraordinary national impact when we all participate. 

NAVA regularly surveys and consults with our Members, friends and followers so to best understand and represent artists’ and artsworkers interests and the changing nature of contemporary practice.

The NAVA 2019 Survey will take approximately 5 minutes or so to complete and we very much appreciate your time.

Support artists


NAVA invites your tax-exempt donation toward NAVA Grants, to establish a new program shaped to your ideas and for which we can offer naming rights.

Over its history, NAVA is proud to have managed over $3 million generously given by philanthropists and sponsors in the form of grants, scholarships and residency programs. 

Providing this kind of philanthropic support can be a source of great satisfaction in making a valuable contribution to supporting living Australian artists.
