The National Indigenous Arts and Cultural Authority is a concept that has re-emerged to provide support for arts within the First Nations Australians.

This year, NIACA, with the support of the Australia Council of the Arts, is running consultations across Australia to engage the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists, organisations, and the community to provide ideas and discussion about NIACA.

These consultations with the community are giving positive feedback on how the Authority should be regulated and the aims and scope of it.

Consultations end on the 7 December, and the results of the surveys and the discussion paper will be available on April 2019 at a national summit.
