The National Institute of American Doll Artists is a worldwide organization of doll artists, supportive patrons and friends whose purpose is to promote the art of the original handmade doll.

NIADA embraces diversity as an essential goal of our organization. We will not discriminate on the basis of race, gender, identity, nationality, sexual orientation, age, or disability. We believe that art is a powerful tool in the evolution of humankind, our cultures, and communities. As artists and supporters of art, we pledge to listen, learn, validate each other, and expand our narratives to become more effective advocates for justice, beauty, love, and healing.
