Industry representatives and Aboriginal artists will come together in Alice Springs today to talk about issues pertinent to Indigenous art in Australia.

Charles Darwin University (CDU) is hosting the one-day symposium, which will be an opportunity for participants to debate topics like ethical dealing and a new industry code of conduct.

Slyvia Kleinert, an Associate Professor of Australian and Indigenous art at CDU, put the event together.

“The title of the symposium is Mwarre Anthurre – that’s a Nurabunda meaning right or proper art works, communities thrive,” she said.

“I think it promises to be a very exciting event.

“It brings together a diverse range of speakers, Indigenous representatives and government agencies.”
