United Aunties Arts Association


Art is a tool for exploration, collaboration, advocacy, and solidarity.

We see artistic expression as growing beyond traditional notions of what contemporary art-making can entail. It is inspired and shaped by community, and driven by social change and justice.

These seeds are already bearing fruit (2023)
