About the Indigenous Culture Support Program

Indigenous culture is a dynamic part of Australian culture and identity. The Indigenous Culture Support (ICS) program supports the maintenance and continued development of Indigenous culture at the community level.

ICS funds activities that encourage culturally vibrant Indigenous communities and contribute to the cultural wellbeing of Indigenous individuals and communities.

The program supports activities that:

  • support new forms of Indigenous cultural expression;
  • increase public awareness of Indigenous culture, including through the presentation and exchange of culture; and
  • support the sustainable development of community organisations involved in cultural activities.
