The ILA program invests around $30 million per annum as part of the Australian Government’s Arts and Cultural Development Program. This includes operational funding support to a network of 24 Indigenous language centres around the country working on conserving, revitalising and sustaining Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander languages.

The ILA program also supports Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to develop, produce, present, exhibit or perform Indigenous arts and language projects that showcase Australia’s traditional and contemporary Indigenous cultural and artistic expressions.

The ILA program understands the importance of language in reconnecting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people with their culture and heritage, and how this in turn contributes to improved health and wellbeing outcomes
