Support the first philanthropically endowed Indigenous Chair in Australia to help amplify the role that Indigenous knowledge, perspectives and practices play in our local, national and international communities.

Create a better future

Indigenous culture in all its diversity is at the heart of Australia’s identity and future.

The Indigenous Chair in Creative Industries will provide input and direction to support learning, teaching, research and outreach across the creative and performing arts, design, digital media and communication disciplines.

Additionally, the Chair will assist in creating pathways to meaningfully connect with Indigenous creatives and communities and, through partnerships with industry, help build pathways to fulfilling careers in the creative industries for Indigenous students.

With your help, QUT can fast track the appointment of the Indigenous Chair in Creative Industries, enabling a new wave of leadership to shape the future of Australia sooner.

“QUT is committed to the pursuit of knowledge for the real world. The establishment of Australia’s first endowed Indigenous Chair will enable QUT to connect with Indigenous perspectives that provide significant insights into our history and future.”
