Are you an avid collector or a serious investor in Aboriginal Art? The first rule when collecting Aboriginal art is to spend time where its created.
The Collect Aboriginal Art programme is offering art buying and investing trips to some of the most remote locations Australia has to offer. The tour focuses on the art of Arnhem Land in the Northern Territory, visiting art centres at Oenpelli, Maningrida, Yirrkala and Elcho Island. All of the centres visited are located in isolated Aboriginal communities generally difficult to access by road with entry by permit only. We provide travel in a comfortable twin engine aircraft and organize all required entry permits, excellent accommodation and meals. You will be visiting and buying direct from community art centres that nurture and develop local talent.
