The Cultural Connections Initiative is a National Museum of Australia community outreach program that supports professional development and employment opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultural practitioners and grassroots cultural work.

Grounded in multiple partnerships with community organisations and national and international cultural institutions, it comprises two complementary programs: the Encounters Fellowships Program and the Cultural Connections Program.

Funding for this initiative comes from the Australian Government’s 250th anniversary of Cook's voyage to Australia program.
