UMIA is an inclusive collective formed in Healesville in the Yarra Valley to unite mobs (artists and their families) through arts practice, to ultimately create local micro industries that focus on cross-generational skill-building and cultural capacity-building. The long-term mission is to create a sustainable Aboriginal-owned and governed art centre in Healesville, operating with a low environmental footprint. This will be achieved by skilling local artists to produce high-end, quality and distinctive art product . Projects will include but are not restricted to: street art, printing, education provision, basketry, jewellery, dance, visual arts, poetry and story-telling. By exploring self-determination, sovereignty, reconciliation, and empowering young people, the project will strengthen and regenerate connection to culture, health and healing.
