Endorsed by the Australian Government as part of National Cultural Policy - Revive, the Code of Practice for Visual Arts, Craft and Design (the Code) is a crucial resource for artists, arts workers and organisation staff at every level. Whether it’s making pivotal decisions, forming agreements or nurturing effective working relationships, the Code serves as a map for ensuring a collaborative, equitable, creative, and inclusive sector.

The training course aims to clarify the Code's application in real-world situations, helping participants understand its relevance and how to apply it effectively to everyday tasks and bigger challenges. Through interactive learning modules, including instructional videos, exercises and case studies, we will dissect various sections of the Code. Additionally, participants will have access to a dedicated community message board to exchange insights and foster a collaborative learning platform.

Duration: 30 to 90 minutes, depending on exercise engagement.

Learning outcomes:

• Master Code access and navigation.
Recognise the Code’s usefulness.
Understand the contents of the Code.
Effectively apply the Code’s principles.

The National Association for the Visual Arts (NAVA) is a national organisation with staff who work across multiple states. The NAVA Board, and the artists, arts workers and organisations that we represent are based across hundreds of sovereign nations and unceded lands throughout the continent that has become colonially known as Australia.

NAVA acknowledges the Traditional Owners, Custodians and knowledge-holders of the unceded lands on which we live, learn, and work. We acknowledge Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the first artists and storytellers on this continent and pay respect to First Nations communities' ancestors and Elders. Sovereignty was never ceded. Always was, always will be Aboriginal land.
