ABORIGINAL ARTS & CULTURE

Aboriginal Population and Language Groups

  • Nearly 3,000 Aboriginal people live in the region (approximately 2.3% of the general area population)
  • The region encompasses 5 Aboriginal Land Councils

South East Arts Aboriginal Arts and Cultural Action Plan, 2012-2015

  • This plan builds on research on Indigenous cultural practice across all 5 of the LGAs represented by SEA and promotes engagement with Aboriginal communities across the region through the development of cultural generators, professional development opportunities and ways for local artists to gain greater access to cultural infrastructure.
  • Price’s Cafe is the first of two pilot projects identified to begin the process of realising this Plan. It is a museum-style exhibition based on an idea by local Aboriginal artist Cheryl Davision and recreates Moruya’s social hub for Aboriginal people in the 1950s and 1960s. The project will be included in the Eurobodalla River of Art Festival 2013.
  • In 2013 an Aboriginal Arts Officer was appointed and is based at the Aboriginal Cultural Centre near Eden.  The position is funded through the Indigenous Culture Support program of the Australian Government’s Office for the Arts.
