$1.4 million funding boost for First Nations arts and culture

Through the Cherish Fund, the Australia Council has delivered $1.4 million to First Nations arts organisations and artists.

As most organisations were preparing to close for the end of year break, the Australia Council made a significant announcement.

It has invested $1.4m in 37 organisations through the Cherish Fund, which was established to invest in First Nations arts and culture during a year of extraordinary disruption.

Executive Director of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Arts Lydia Miller said: ‘2020 has been a year of disruption, but it has also been a year of reflection, listening, creative thinking and finding new ways of connecting through our weekly online rountables.’
