Where does money spent on artwork end up?

Artists are paid 80 percent of the sale price of each artwork sold.

Coolamon Aboriginal Arts Hub charges a 20 percent commission for professional services, program costs and artist support.

What is our governance structure?

Coolamon Arts Hub was set up and is managed by Annecto, a nonprofit aged care and disability provider working in partnership with Aboriginal Elders and communities across Australia.

Coolamon Arts Hub is led and overseen by an Elders Steering Committee made up of senior Aboriginal Arts and Culture leaders from across New South Wales.

Elders Steering Committee founding members include Gumbaynggirr Elder Uncle Roger Jarrett, and Dunghutti Elder Uncle Bob Mumbler.

A survivor of the Stolen Generations, Uncle Roger is an artist, writer and mentor, and Board Member of Kinchela Boys Home Aboriginal Corporation (KBHAC).

Community leader and social welfare advocate Uncle Bob is a former Chair of the Dunghutti Elders Council and a recipient of an Order of Australia Medal.

How do you know you are purchasing authentic Aboriginal art?

Each artwork sold comes with a ‘Certificate of Authenticity’ which verifies the provenance of each artwork. Certificates include a photo of the artwork and record key details of the artist and the artwork.
