Working towards a

National Indigenous Arts and Cultural Authority

National Indigenous Arts and Cultural Authority

For decades, the idea of a National Indigenous Arts and Cultural Authority (NIACA) has emerged and re-emerged in recognition of the unique place of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander arts as the world’s premier continuous cultural tradition. A NIACA would acknowledge and assist with the ongoing responsibilities and obligations for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to maintain, control, protect and nurture this inheritance and its myriad contemporary creative expressions.

We want to hear from you on this important issue.

There are a number of ways you can provide input through the consultation process. They include:

  • writing a submission in response to the discussion paper
  • completing the online survey
  • attending one of the First Nations consultation forums

The input through this consultation will feed into a national gathering on First Nations arts and culture in the second half of 2019.
