Shared Responsibility Agreements are agreements between governments and Indigenous communities to provide discretionary funding in return for community obligations. The new arrangements developed from an initiative of the Council of Australian Governments and replace the previous ATSIC system of funding. For more information see 'Shared Responsibility Agreement' below.
The SRA aims to lift the standard and quality of Larrakia artworks in order to improve the sale of artwork and generate greater economic income for the community.
