Demand for Indigenous artwork assisted by $202,620 grant

The quality of artwork and output capabilities of talented Aboriginal sculptor Adam King will be enhanced through a $202,620 Indigenous Entrepreneurs Package grant.

The grant is part of the Nationals/Liberal Government’s $115 million Indigenous Entrepreneurs Package election commitment. This investment will support Urban Sculpture Aboriginal Corporation (USAC) in acquiring a water-cutting machine, Metalmaster roll former and a forklift, as well as welding and cutting machinery.

The purchase will allow ASAC to meet the growing demand for its artwork pieces and to employ local jobseekers. Other Aboriginal businesses will be sought for USAC’s supply chain.
