Productivity Commission Report into Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Visual Arts and Crafts
The Productivity Commission recently released a draft report on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Visual Arts and Crafts. At Bulurru, we are focused on ensuring Aboriginal Story and Culture are promoted and protected in all that we do. Our artists receive royalties on every product sold using their artwork. We work closely with our artists when designing new products to ensure they are happy to have their artwork used.
While we can outline how we work with out artists, we thought it best for you to hear from one of our artists themselves, Kathleen Buzzacott:
"There are a lot of bad legally binding licencing agreements being signed by unsuspecting Indigenous artists. I am very happy to be a part of a team of artists that has signed a really good licencing agreement with Bulurru. I see that Bulurru do their best to do right by their artists. They are transparent in all they do from maintaining the integrity of the art works, to making sure we artists are paid fair commission in royalties each month. Its refreshing to be working honest people. I advise any Indigenous artist before signing a licencing agreement to get legal advise from Arts Law."

If you know of an Aboriginal Artist that would be a great addition to our team, please contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
