About Arts NT
Arts NT is a branch within the Department of Arts and Museums (DoAM).
Arts NT supports, develops and promotes growth of the creative arts sector for the benefit of the Territory, visitors, the community and economy through providing advice, partnerships, and providing financial and infrastructure support.
Through its programs, Arts NT activates responsive and appropriate mechanisms for the development of the Northern Territory's artists and organisations. Key programs include the NT Arts Grants Program and the Australian Government Regional Arts Fund which distribute funding through the advertised rounds. Funded projects further the vision of exploring, expressing and showcasing Northern Territory identity through arts and culture.
Arts NT participates in national arts and culture policy working groups, research and evaluation projects that impact on how the arts make a positive contribution to healthy and creative communities. Arts NT’s role in cross agency advice and collaborative projects within the NTG and all spheres of government aims to ensure the Territory’s position in the Australian context is strengthened and supported.
Arts NT aims to ensure that all Territory residents have access to a variety of arts and cultural activities either as audience or as active participants.
