Many Nations Art Gallery
Winya Indigenous Furniture is constantly striving to give back to Indigenous communities as we understand the importance of actively working to aid with the economic inclusion of Indigenous peoples. Among our many current initiatives we are doing to achieve our goals of giving back, we have recently worked with another Indigenous company to begin the Many Nations Art Gallery.
Winya has devised a whole new model that involves corporate Australia in our process of working with Indigenous Australians. The Many Nations Art Gallery is a whole new model for corporate Australia to more directly impact on remote communities.
The Many Nations Art Gallery is an original art concept that focuses directly on a region of Australia and their stories told through their art. The majority of the profits from the sales of the art will go directly to the artist.
Winya is working to provide a unique opportunity to drive income and opportunity directly back to remote communities. Winya as the leader in corporate social responsibility is working hard to ensure that our influence in the corporate world continues to impact Indigenous Australians positively.
