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.
The funding for this initiative has been made available as part of the Australian Government’s suite of measures to mark the 250th anniversary in 2020 of the HMS Endeavour’s voyage along the east coast.
