Twenty seven visual artists have teamed up to form a new association that will tackle issues relating to intellectual property rights.
The Viti Association of Visual Artists Director Meretui Ratunabuabua says the association is basically a network of visual artists.
“The other thing is unity of standards and looking at ethics and raising the awareness on the value of artists. Sometimes we are sort of looked down but our arts it tells a story, it communicates with the public so we really want to raise the standard of arts in Fiji.”
Ratunabuabua says currently they’re looking at strategic planning and preparing a constitution for the association.
