The National Arts and Crafts Industry Support (NACIS) program provides direct funding support to Indigenous art centres and arts support and advocacy organisations. The program’s overall objectives are to assist art centres to become stronger and to build a more sustainable Indigenous visual arts industry.
To achieve these objectives, NACIS funding assists organisations to:
- strengthen governance and business management practices in the industry;
- provide opportunities for artists to maintain, develop and extend their professional art practice; and
- provide opportunities for arts workers to develop professional skills and experience
The NACIS program is part of a coordinated Australian Government approach to develop the Indigenous visual arts sector that is outlined in the Indigenous Art Centres Strategy and Action Plan.
