Central to the significance of Garage Graphix is the Aboriginal Arts Program. Led by Aboriginal arts workers, this pioneering program was one of the first of its kind in Australia. The Program trained and mentored Aboriginal arts workers to produce issue-based posters with local Aboriginal organisations and communities. The artworks produced through this program are key examples of the development of suburban Aboriginal art.
