Astronomy Australia Limited (AAL) supports astronomy projects that have formed close collaborations with Indigenous Australians. Astronomers from the Murchison Widefield Array (MWA), a precursor for the multi-billion Euro Square Kilometre Array (SKA) have been working with the Indigenous communities of the Mid West region in Western Australia, including Wajarri Yamaji people (the traditional owners of the SKA site), for over a decade. The MWA director, Prof. Steven Tingay from Curtin University, and colleagues from Yamaji Art in Geraldton, have brought together art, science, culture, and technology to curate world-wide art exhibitions and produce a feature length film.

AAL is supported by the Australian Government via the National Collaborative Research Infrastructure Strategy (NCRIS).
