This means that Yamaji Art ensures:
- 100% returns back to the Aboriginal artist and the art centres/community centres;
- fostering of cultural maintenance and develoment;
- best practice in the making, marketing and distribution of Aboriginal Art;
- ensuring artists work in decent conditions and have their rights protected; and
