VALUES

BRA is a grass-roots arts organisation working with community in remote regional Australia that has a large Indigenous demographic. As such, our values reflect this and are largely defined by it. Inherent in all work are embedded values that underpin the whole-of-organisation approach. Our values describe both the organisation and the personnelwho work within it.
