IACA COVID-19 Response

IACA COVID-19 Response

As the COVID-19 Virus situation evolves rapidly, concern for the health and safety of our member Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art Centres and their communities is paramount. IACA is responding to social distancing and travel advice and has postponed all workshops, public events and travel to communities until we are through this pandemic. Advice is that it will be at least several months. If we all do the right thing it may be shorter (here’s hoping).

The IACA team have prepared home office arrangements and are contactable as usual with emails and mobile phone numbers remaining the same. Please don’t hesitate to contact us, we will be in touch regularly and provide you all with information as it becomes available. We will continue to support you in every way we can online.

Considering the risks that the broader economic impact of the global situation will have on the livelihoods of our member artists, IACA is currently strongly advocating for Art Centres via meetings with all levels of Government and other relevant agencies.   

Don’t forget to stay tuned across our online platforms, social media and website.

We’ll be in touch with updates as the situation progresses. Thank you!
