Territory Arts Project

A healthy, vibrant artistic and cultural sector is critical to the health and wellbeing of our community, and will also underpin the Territory’s recovery. With the easing of restrictions across the Territory, grants will support NT artists and arts workers to develop and create new works and explore new ways to increase participation in arts and culture.

With a focus on the sustainability of the sector, grants will support existing and emerging artists in the creation of new artist works and skills development.
