NAVA Call for Vote for the Arts


With the Federal Election now set for 21 May the National Association for the Visual Arts ask you to take the pledge to #VoteForArt campaign and policy priorities.

Can you help NAVA communicate voter support for the visual arts, by taking the pledge to Vote For Art?

All Australians would benefit immensely from ambitious visual arts and culture experiences made possible through strategic policy and funding investment. We’re calling on federal election candidates to:

  1. Put First Nations first
  2. Stimulate long-term sustainability
  3. Pay artists for their work
  4. Prioritise equity, cultural safety and accessibility
  5. Nourish arts education

Read NAVA’s key recommendations for each policy priority.

Take pledge
