Indigenous Cultural Program

Footscray Community Arts Centre’s Indigenous Cultural Program encompasses a range of programs, projects and events that focus on creatively engaging artists and audiences from the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities that populate Melbourne’s West.

FCAC Indigenous Cultural Program area provides a platform specifically for the creative engagement of Indigenous artists, recognising their unique cultures and artistic perspectives as the First Peoples of Australia.

The program is developed in consultation with the community and implemented by the FCAC Indigenous Cultural Program Creative Producer with the support of the FCAC Indigenous Advisory Group, including Elders in Residence N’arweet Carolyn Briggs AM and Uncle Larry Walsh. Programming is responsive to the needs of the community and embraces opportunities to may arise throughout the operational year. The program is built around a stream of core activities and augmented through its review and consultation processes.

If you’re interested in getting involved in our Indigenous Cultural Program, please contact Senior Producer Dan Mitchell at dan@footscrayarts.com.
