Established in 2016, the Indigenous Art Program showcases some of the most celebrated and widely recognised Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists and their stories. With over 80 artists exhibited to date, the program continues to celebrate and acknowledge Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people's depth and strength of culture, and understanding of the land called 'Australia'.

The program, located throughout the Outdoor Gallery, transforms Brisbane's streets and laneways into an exhibition of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artworks in various places and spaces, including large-scale banners, light boxes, vitrines and projections. The program is also accompanied by a series of public programs, including walking tours, artist talks and workshops.
