The Association for Native Development in the Performing and Visual Arts, is a community-based and culturally-driven arts organization for Indigenous Artists in all of the artistic disciplines. ANDPVA provides venues, professional and artistic development opportunities, and learning forums for Indigenous artists through Visual Art Exhibits, Multi-Disciplinary Arts Festivals, Artists Workshops and their annual ArtsCamp for Native Youth. The Association, now in its 27th year, continues to follow the vision of its founder, the late Cree elder James Buller, who believed that performing and Visual Native artists gave power to the self-image of Native individuals and the entire communities. All of ANDPVA’s programs are guided by both Elders and accomplished Indigenous artists who act as resource people, facilitators, advisors and mentors. ANDPVA sponsors numerous festivals, workshops, and art symposiums.
