                    Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Arts

                    The City of Melbourne’s Indigenous Arts Program supports Indigenous artists, arts workers and community members to devise, produce and directly manage arts and cultural projects.

                    ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​In doing so, we acknowledge, respect and support the rights of Indigenous artists and communities to determine their own artistic practice and cultural priorities and we support increased opportunities for employment, and professional and economic development.

                    If you're interested in funding for one-off arts projects by and for Indigenous artists, organisations and communities, you can find out more through our annual arts grants program.
