ABORIGINAL ART CENTRES - New Indigenous Culture and Capability Funding

Thursday, 28 August 2014

Key Dates:

The funding round opens on Monday 08 September 2014 and closes at 2pm AEST on Tuesday 07 October 2014.

The Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet (PM&C) has just opened a funding round under the Australian Government’s new Indigenous Advancement Strategy (IAS).

One of the five program streams under the IAS is "Culture and Capability" which is likely to be of relevance to art centres, particularly any that are interested in doing cultural maintenance, capacity building, leadership and governance activities.

"Culture and Capability"

This program will support Indigenous Australians to maintain their culture, participate equally in the economic and social life of the nation and ensure that Indigenous organisations are capable of delivering quality services to their clients. The program will fund a range of activities including those that support:

- Constitutional recognition

- Indigenous heritage protection

- Broadcasting and communications

- Leadership, organisational strengthening and engagement initiatives

- Community and organisational capacity building

- Support for Indigenous cultural matters.

The round will provide funding from January 2015 (for calendar year activities) or from July 2015 (for financial year activities).

It will provide an opportunity for organisations with a current funding agreement expiring in 2014-15 to apply for future funding, and an opportunity for new organisations to apply for funding.

For 2015 calendar year activities, offers are expected to be made in late November 2014. Offers for 2015-16 financial year activities and beyond are expected to be made in March 2015.


An Application Kit for the funding is available from here.
