The Arts Law Centre has launched a suite of in-language videos to help Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists better understand contractual arrangements and their rights.
The videos are part of the Artists in the Black service dedicated to providing legal assistance and advice to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists and communities.
The Artists in the Black videos explain agreements in 17 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander languages, including Luritja, Gurindji and Pitjantjatjara.
During the International Year of Indigenous Languages, the Arts Law Centre has partnered with the Central Australian Aboriginal Media Association (CAAMA) to produce the informative series.
The videos explain contract agreements between artists and art centres. They provide details about how artists can protect their moral rights and intellectual property, and profit from their work.
The Arts Law Centre is also making improvements to the 'Artists in the Black' website, to provide better resources, more up-to-date information and easier user access.
