We work with artists and communities to sustain their holistic wellbeing through self expression, self determination and creativity.
Our mission is to develop a deeper understanding of culture and its importance to the fabric of Australian society through the creation of music, performing arts and cultural exchange programs.
Our Focus Areas
CiCADA International Ltd focusses on these areas to create impactful, positive change.
Cicada’s programs provide jobs, support and opportunity for artists, musicians & music practitioners, technicians, producers, engineers, story tellers, film makers & photographers, singers, songwriters, graphic designers, classical artists, community arts workers and more.
In 2018, Cicada International established the inaugural Australian Women in Music Awards (AWMA) and Conference Program to recognise the value and contribution of women across all areas of the Australian music industry. AWMA 2022 is scheduled to be held 17 – 18 May in Brisbane after postponing the event in 2020 and 2021 due to COVID-19.
A unique cultural exchange program designed to share the oldest knowledge of the most ancient culture in the world to bring unity and healing to the past, present and future through Yolngu pedagogy.
