  • 6. • Art centres are crucial parts of many of the communities they operate in. • There are around 90 in remote Australia, who work with over 10,000 artists. • They create social, cultural, creative and economic capital for individuals and their communities. 6 • They are often the only form of non- welfare income in remote communities.
  • 7. • Art centres generate more than $30million in sales directly into remote Australia every year. • Total sales and total production have been increasing for remote Australia… • However, this plays out in complicated ways as the commercial art market is very sensitive to 'over-supply' - especially during a time of tough conditions in the art market. • Around 70% of artists are women and about a quarter are under 30. 7
