Indigenous Cultural and Intellectual Property (ICIP)

A multitude of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people have contributed to the Bangarra story, since its beginnings. Over this time, spanning across decades, Bangarra has been inspired by the many cultures, traditions, lands and seas, languages, songs, dances, art and people from our many homelands around the country to tell our stories.

We’re committed to telling our stories and respecting the people who contribute to Bangarra’s songline.

In 2015 Bangarra worked with Terri Janke and Company to develop and implement an Indigenous Cultural and Intellectual Property (ICIP) framework, acknowledging the rights that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people want to protect and control the use of their cultural heritage.

That framework is Bangarra’s ICIP Policy, which is reproduced in full below. Your use of this website is subject to the ICIP Policy.

In particular you acknowledge and agree that:

  • The Content may incorporate tangible and intangible ICIP and Bangarra does not own ICIP that is incorporated in the Content. All ICIP in the Content is used with the authorisation and consent of the relevant Traditional Owners.
  • Content which carries a Traditional Custodian’s notice may be viewed on the Knowledge Ground but any re-use including for personal, non-commercial purposes is not permitted.
  • If Content is provided with an acknowledgement of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander contributors, you must maintain that acknowledgement when using the Content for an authorised purpose outside of the Knowledge Ground. Acknowledgements may not removed or amended in any way.

If you have any questions about how the ICIP Policy affects your use of this website, please contact [email protected].
