2015–16 funding recipients
The ILA–Projects program, administered by the Ministry for the Arts, provides targeted funding to support Indigenous art and languages. This results in outcomes that align closely with the Australian Government’s priorities of improving the lives of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. Our Indigenous programs promote the sharing of language and culture between generations and the ongoing viability of Indigenous-owned enterprises. They enrich the social, cultural and economic life of Indigenous communities and provide opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to generate income, gain employment and develop professional skills, while maintaining a continued connection to country and culture.
