At the request of Community Leaders, Agency was established in early 2020 as a conduit to increase connectivity between innovative philanthropists who care deeply about Indigenous-led initiatives and Indigenous Communities.
With over ten years of on-the-ground experience, knowledge of cultural frameworks and well-established relationships with cultural leaders, Agency is well-placed to bring together Indigenous-led programs and philanthropic supporters, and to advocate and promote the rich practice of Indigenous artists both on a national and international stage.
Our values align with the foundations of Indigenous resilience, strength and a desire to share, and we believe that ultimately our work has the ability to change the general public’s perception, understanding, connection with, appreciation of, and support for Australian Indigenous art and culture around the world.
We seek seed operational funding to support our first 6-12 months of existence during these unprecedented times, and ensure our proven ability to generate strong engagement throughout the sector and attract bold and committed ethical investment in Indigenous-led projects.
The communities who have given us their trust are ready, our network of supporters are ready and growing, and we are well-positioned through strong governance and leadership to begin to service a need, and work together to build sustainable and measurable benefits for Indigenous people, art and Country.
