Strengthening Indigenous participation, practice and entrepreneurship in the digital economy.

What is IDX?

What happens when digital technology is embraced by the world’s oldest living culture?  We believe the answer is Indigenous Digital Excellence (IDX).

The National Centre of Indigenous Excellence (NCIE) and the Telstra Foundation have forged an exciting partnership to unlock the opportunities the digital world can provide Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

The IDX Initiative aims to strengthen Indigenous participation, practice and entrepreneurship in the digital economy including:

  • working with community to deliver compelling and engaging learning experiences that build the next generation of “digital making” skills
  • capacity and skills building for young Indigenous entrepreneurs.
