Summary
This report analyses responses provided by 29 ANKA-supported art centres and artist groups to a community collections needs assessment survey conducted in late 2016 and early 2017. The responses highlight the importance of community collections and identify a motivation and commitment to preserve the Indigenous knowledge and cultural practices embedded in them. The findings reveal that many art centres are caring for community collections and wish to continue doing so despite this being outside their core business activities and budget structures. The majority of centres do not have adequate infrastructure, trained staff or sufficient funding to maximise the use of and ensure the preservation of their collections. The report concludes that action is urgently required to ensure long-term preservation of these unique and irreplaceable collections
