Applications open for Australia Council Custodianship program

The Custodianship program is designed and delivered by First Nations leaders for First Nations leaders to transform sustainability in culture, practice, community and the arts.

The Custodianship program will unearth First Nations leadership by developing different ways of knowing, being and doing.

Cultural practitioners, artists and arts workers from across art forms and career levels will explore what custodianship and leadership means in diverse contexts. They will learn from self, from others and with peers.

Over 12 months, participants will join three residentials, online/phone sessions and on-country learning. These will be guided by role models, cultural teachers and Elders.

Applications for the program are now open and close on 4 November 2019.
