Black Diamonds Program
Brisbane City Council's Black Diamonds Program provides a range of free or low-cost activities to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples living in Brisbane, with a focus on young people. The program aims to increase participation in activities that have a strong focus on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture learning.
Community Partnership Assistance Scheme
The Black Diamonds Community Partnership Assistance Scheme supports and partners with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community organisations to deliver events/projects as identified by their community. The program provides community organisations with the opportunity to develop and implement sporting, recreation or arts-based events and projects that have a strong cultural focus.
The event/project must be targeted to Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander peoples living in Brisbane and meet one or more of the following objectives:
- provide opportunities to participate in sport, health, recreation or arts-based projects that have a cultural focus
- develop and strengthen leadership skills, self-esteem, or cultural connections
- promote health and well-being.
