The department, through its Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Program, actively promotes a positive and accurate image of Australia’s Indigenous peoples internationally. It does this through developing projects and initiatives that demonstrate the significant contributions Indigenous peoples make to the arts, business, industry and the professional fields. One of the key projects included the international touring of the Gelam Nguzu Kazi—Dugong My Son, Torres Strait Islander exhibition. The department supported one of the key artists, Mr Dennis Nona, to attend an exhibition opening and deliver master art classes in Vientiane, Laos, enabling audiences to experience first-hand the diversity of Indigenous art and culture.
