Statewide Indigenous Community Arts Development
The Statewide Indigenous Community Arts Development (SICAD) project strives for arts outcomes that are culturally positive and of benefit to wider regional communities by supporting Aboriginal leadership, project ownership and community wellbeing through the arts.
Supported by Arts South Australia, SICAD was developed in 2005 following an extended field trip around rural South Australia by representatives of Aṉanguku Arts, Arts South Australia and Country Arts SA.
The focus of SICAD is Aboriginal artists living in regional and remote areas of South Australia outside of the Aṉangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara (APY) Lands. The SICAD project assists some 150 artists each year through visits, workshops and liaison through regions defined for consultation and service delivery as:
