Dear RNLDers,

Senator George Brandis, Minister for the Arts, today issued a press release
outlining changes to the Indigenous Languages Support Program. See

According to the press release, the new Indigenous Languages and Arts
program will fund organisations that support the revival and maintenance of
Indigenous languages, and provide career opportunities and pathways for
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander language workers. Operational funds
for art and languages centres and service delivery organisations will be
delivered through targeted grants (direct offers) from 1 July 2015.

In addition to Senator Brandis' press release the Indigenous Languages
Support web site has already been modified to become Indigenous Languages
and Arts. See

The web site includes more details on the changes. The FAQ page
provides some detail on the process of direct offers to be made to
targetted organisations, and the application process that will open later
for language projects.

We understand that guidelines are likely to be finalised and released in
the next couple of weeks.

best wishes

Dr Margaret Florey
