IDAIA is dedicated to this unique, immemorial art tradition whose beauty and inspiring spirituality have endured beyond 60,000 years to blossom over the last decades and gain international recognition as “one of the most important art movements of recent times” as praised by Stéphane Martin, first President of Musée du quai Branly, Paris, France



IDAIA is committed to protecting and promoting ethical practices, fair for both the artists and the buyers, notably in regards to remote community Aboriginal art:

Sourcing and working only with and for the official Aboriginal art structures: the remote community, Aboriginal-owned art centres (artist cooperatives) spread across the country or equivalent ethical organisations acting as art centres as recognised by the Australian public museums.

IDAIA strives to educate about what is at stake in the artworks’ selection process

IDAIA supports the official recommendations from the Senate Inquiry’s Report on Australian Indigenous Art Sustainability published in 2007, has been contributing to the Indigenous Art Code (Indigenous Australian Art Commercial Code of Conduct) by submitting its comments on the draft Code and has been an official signatory member of the Code every year since its launch.
