Artists Alliance

Artists Alliance is a membership based organisation established in 1991 to represent and advance the professional interests of visual artists in Aotearoa/New Zealand.

Artists Alliance sees itself as having a unique role, which is
- to be the membership organisation of choice for visual artists
- to be the advocate for the visual arts sector in the wider arts community
- to have strategic partnerships with other key organisations, both nationally and internationally, for the benefit of members, constituents and the wider arts community
- to provide a comprehensive set of services which are specific to the visual arts sector.

In 2001 Artists Alliance joined the group of arts organisations receiving annual funding from Creative New Zealand. In advising of this funding Creative New Zealand said that the offer of funding reflected the Arts Board’s view “that Artists Alliance plays a nationally significant role in strengthening the voice and capabilities of the individual visual artist in New Zealand.”

Artists Alliance represents the visual arts sector

- as a member of the Copyright Council of New Zealand;
- by having had a presence on the steering committee for the establishment of objectspace, a dedicated centre for contemporary craft and design in Auckland;
- by representing visual artists on the Auckland City Creative Communities Funding Scheme;
- by being a member of a national Arts Advocacy Network;
- as an Executive Member of the New Zealand Coalition for Cultural Diversity;
- by being one of the founding partners of The Arts Work Project.

Artists Alliance produces the following publications:

- A bi-monthly magazine (usually 28 pages) that goes out free to members and to subscribers.
- Appliance. This publication lists shows at artist run spaces and covers editorial of interest to younger, new graduates and emerging artists.
- The Guide for Visual Artists, that gives details of competitions, awards and residencies available in the visual arts in this country and some overseas opportunities. It also carries information on Creative New Zealand and Creative Communities funding, artist run initiatives and tertiary art institutions. This is available for sale – at a discounted prince for members.
- The artists’ workbook. An inquiry tool: professional development for visual artists. This resource is available free to members only and has sections on the visual arts landscape; professional strategy; business practice; relationships; communications and resources.

Other services include advice on insurance, health and safety, finances (incl. GST), funding and sponsorship, CV preparation, contracts and other legal issues. If we don’t know the answer, we find someone who does.

In June 2003 Artists Alliance launched its website
