Indigenous Knowledge Centres (IKCs)

Indigenous Knowledge Centres (IKCs)2There is a network of 25 Indigenous Knowledge Centres (IKCs) in Queensland – from Cherbourg in the south east, to Boigu Island in the Torres Strait, just a stone’s throw from PNG.

IKCs are owned, managed and staffed by local Aboriginal councils or the Torres Strait Island Regional Council. The State Library of Queensland funds and facilitates the establishment of these Centres, and provides ongoing support through staff training and delivery of programs to sustain knowledge transfer.

IKCs empower communities through new technologies, literacy and learning; embrace local knowledge, culture and heritage; and share experience from a rich and dynamic Indigenous world… keeping culture strong for generations.
