Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people now have the opportunity to receive grants for content created on Instagram.

Screen Australia has partnered up with the social media platform and will offer 15 First Nations creators 7600 dollars in funding to take part in the program, which will see training workshops covering product, wellbeing and creativity.

Maramanindji woman and head of Screen Australia's First Nations program Penny Smallacombe spoke to CAAMA’s Philippe Perez, about the program (download audio below).
