Indigenous Languages and Arts Program
The Australian Government acknowledges the intrinsic value of Indigenous culture for all Australians and Australia as a nation. Language and art form a large part of culture and are essential to the well-being and identity of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. They play an integral role in maintaining the sustainability, vitality and strength of Indigenous communities.
The Indigenous Languages and Arts program (ILA) provides funding for projects and organisations that support participation in and maintenance of Australia’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures through languages and arts.
