Desart is the peak arts body for Central Australian Aboriginal Arts and Crafts centres and we have over 40 members.
Our member art centres are community-based enterprises, owned and governed by Aboriginal people. They provide economic, social and cultural benefits.
We are committed to supporting Aboriginal art centres, which provide autonomy, sustained growth and stability for Central Australian Aboriginal Communities.
One Mob, One Voice
We advocate and are a strong voice for our Aboriginal art centre members by representing them on external boards, committees, art fairs, research and conferences.
My Job, My Learning
We increase employment and career pathways for Aboriginal people in the arts through our Aboriginal Art Worker Program and advocacy work.
