A Keeping Place is of great significance to Aboriginal communities. They are a safe space for the return of cultural material from museums and other collecting institutions back to Country, preserving and celebrating First Nations culture.

These four NSW Aboriginal cultural centres and keeping places will lead the way as cultural collection digital champions thanks to an $800,000 Creative Capital investment by the NSW Government.
The funding will provide additional resourcing and state-of-the-art technology to help the cultural centres to develop innovative and culturally appropriate processes to manage, preserve and share their unique local collections.
