Indigenous Languages and Arts Program, Grant Round 2019

Indigenous Enterprise Development FundingThe latest round of the Federal Government’s Indigenous Language and Arts Program is open to applications.

Funding of up to $100,000 a year for up to two years is available for Indigenous arts and language projects through an annual competitive grants round.

The overarching outcome of the Program is to support a professional, viable and ethical Indigenous languages and arts network that features strong participation and provides for economic opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

It also aims to support Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities to revive and maintain languages, and to develop and present art.

Grant funding allocated through the Program supports three key outcomes:

  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples are empowered to preserve and teach their culture through languages and arts
  • a strong sense of cultural identity and wellbeing in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, which contributes to sustainable and strong communities
  • celebration and increased recognition of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander languages and arts in the wider Australian community

The overarching outcome of the Program is to support a professional, viable and ethical Indigenous languages and arts network that features strong participation and provides for economic opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

Application for this round of funding closes on the 8th February 2019.
