Arts organisations across the NT will have the stability to plan, develop and showcase arts programs and services, thanks to a $23 million investment from the Territory Labor Government.
Applications are now open as part of the Arts Grants Program which offers funding for five years from 2025-2029.
Grants of up to $250,000 per year are available for established arts organisations under the Leading Arts Organisation category; and up to $50,000 per year for small arts organisations under the Key Arts Organisation category.
The funding is available to arts organisations that have a track record of delivering innovative projects and high-quality arts programs and services.
Government partnerships with arts organisations are important to the Territory’s social and cultural future because they help to empower artists; amplify the impact of the arts; and foster innovation, creativity, and collaboration.
Investing in the arts is also valuable to the NT economy with 23 arts organisations currently funded under the five-year program. This provides employment to more than 3000 artists and creatives, and delivers programs and services to around two million people.
