Empowering our people · In our decision · In our culture · For our future

Indigenous Knowledge Centres

TSIRC's Indigenous Knowledge Centres (IKC's) are a joint partnership with Queensland's State Library. The IKC partnership is guided by our community values, social identity, ownership and authority.

Our Indigenous Knowledge Centres endeavour to deliver new technology, literacy and learning programs to empower our communities through shared learning experiences. We work with communities to preserve local knowledge and culture and heritage, to keep our culture strong for generations.
