Professional Development

Kaiela Arts provides professional and skills development opportunities for more than fifty local Aboriginal member artists to develop careers as professional practicing artists.

With more than 40,000 years of Yorta Yorta history in the region, our local Aboriginal artists have developed and shared their artistic expression and culture over generations.

Kaiela Arts builds on this artistic practice and heritage by mentoring our members to build and sustain a career in the arts. Our mentoring provides support to artists of all abilities to develop new work, present work in exhibitions, guide arts business skills such as pricing and licensing work, gaining commissions and creating a platform to speak about their work through education and public programs.
