The ILA program invests around $20 million each year to support Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples to express, preserve and maintain their cultures through languages and arts activities around Australia.
As we rebuild from the impact of COVID-19, creative and cultural activity will play a key role in our economic and social recovery.
The ILA program provides grant funding to community-led organisations for:
projects that contribute to the capture, revitalisation and maintenance of Australia's Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander languages
projects that develop, produce, present, exhibit or perform Indigenous arts and language projects that showcase Australia's traditional and contemporary Indigenous cultural and artistic expressions.
