Funding for Indigenous languages and art

25 Jul 2017

A total of 35 Indigenous arts and language organisations will receive funding for up to five years through the Indigenous Languages and Arts (ILA) program to support art and language initiatives.

Funded projects include an online catalogue of language resources, Elder-run language camps, artistic cultural performances and supporting younger community members to capture stories in their area.

This funding is in addition to the $30 million already provided over the next four years for currently funded projects through the ILA program.

Through this funding, the Government recognises that language and art play an important role in Indigenous communities and maintaining the identity of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
