Australian Indigenous Art Trade Association
AIATA - What do we do ?
The association provides information to members and advocates the views of members to government, industry and the media. The association was formed in 1998 following a meeting of representatives from many different industry groups across the country. The aim was to build a truly national organisation with strong code of ethics.
The purposes of AAAA in our constitution include:
Sabine Haider, the director of Central Art - Aboriginal Art Store was appointed as a Director of the Association in August 2008 and served as Vice President for a number of years before being appointed as President in 2012. The nine years served the Association have been characterised by Sabine's tireless efforts to move the Association forward, the empathy she has shown and the support to President during her Vice Presidency and her dedication to ensuring the Association operated with a human face during her Presidency.
Sabine dedicated a lot of time to developing and improving relationships with peak industry bodies such as Desart and the Indigenous Art Code, together with growing strong relations with the Department of Arts. Members today enjoy the dividents from Sabine's efforts in that she has been a big contributor. On the 21 April 2017 resigned as President.
Sabine Haider has been elected as the AAAA representative on the Indigenous Art Code board on the 28th April 2017.
