Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Arts

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander individuals, groups and organisations may choose to have their application assessed by a different arts practice peer panel if they prefer.

Applications from other individuals, groups and organisations for activities that involve Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and communities must comply with NATSIAP.
