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

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, and has been contributing to the Indigenous Australian Art Commercial Code of Conduct by submitting its comments on the draft and is a signatory of the Code.
