Ethics Code

We at Waradah Aboriginal Centre, have at the core of our code of ethics a desire to honour and promote Aboriginal culture and to educate our visitors in as many aspects of Australian Aboriginality as possible.

Our professional dancers come from a variety of locations and gather together with a wealth of cultural heritage, experience and passion which they share through song and dance.

We take pride in the uniqueness of the art and artefacts that we showcase in our gallery on behalf of the artists.

All artwork is original and authentic. Certificates of Authenticity are issued on purchase of all artworks.

The artwork on display has been purchased either directly from the government community centers, the artists or our associated private art dealers. Artists are paid in full and at an agreed value at the time of purchase, unless on consignment. The price set takes into consideration the artist’s seniority and artistic status, as well as the size and quality of artwork.

Education plays a key role in our organisation and we actively promote Aboriginal art and culture in schools and clubs. We develop cultural learning activities for children and encourage participation in informal discussions for the purpose on retaining, sharing and celebrating the rich cultural heritage of Aboriginal Australia.
