The Indigenous Art Centre Alliance (IACA) is the peak body for 14 exceptional Far North Queensland art centres. Most of these are centres, before the establishment of the IACA, faced difficulty in revealing to the state and the nation the talents possessed by their artists. As the organisation celebrates 10 years of dedicated industry support in the region, they also celebrate the many achievements by arts centres and artists working in a multitude of different mediums.
The Belonging : Stories From Far North Queensland collaboration between the National Museum of Australia and the members of IACA is a milestone. IACA is the first Indigenous art centre peak body to facilitate such an enormous body of work, from an entire region, subsequently acquired and exhibited by a national institution.
Whether you're captivated by culture on a canvas or Dreamtime in design, first and foremost are the artists who wholeheartedly share their cultural connection to the country on which they still reside today.
