Indigenous Business Development Program

Kathleen Buzzacott has recently opened a studio / gallery 20km west from Alice Springs located near Simpsons Gap in the West MacDonnell Ranges. Kathleen is an accomplished artist. Her artwork is of high quality and features native animals and fine dot work. Stories of growing up in the bush invoke happy memories which she portrays as she puts paintbrush to canvas.

Kathleen participated in the Indigenous Business Development Program. Kathleen said "Through the Department of Trade, Business and Innovation, I went through the Indigenous Business Development Program. The thing that I was seeking was to establish a successful business. The relationship with the Department of Trade, Business and Innovation is vital when you're setting up a business because sometimes you know, you need some advice especially when you don't have a business consultant.”

The Indigenous Business Development Program assists Indigenous people entering into or expanding commercial business arrangements that will develop employment and income opportunities. The program provides flexible funding that meets Indigenous business needs and is based on sound commercial practice.
