Design and Art OnlineDAAO is one of the biggest data research projects in Australian visual culture and you need to make your research visible through it, for yourself or your research or institution.

Your research will contribute to Australia’s leading research and collection institutions. This collaborative e-Research tool and database is built upon the foundations of Joan Kerr’s Dictionary of Australian Artists and Heritage: The National Women’s Art Book and Vivian Johnson’s Dictionary of Western Desert Artists.

This project is a call to arms to help redress the online gender imbalance. Did you know that only 14% of Wikipedia content is about women and only 9% of editors are female? In most Western art galleries and museums, women still comprise only 10 to 17% of the permanent collections.

Places are limited. Bring your research data on a stick or printed / CV and laptop.
