The NT Government has opened Round 2 of the Arts Trail Regional Stimulus Grant program.
“The funding program is part of our $6 million investment over three years to help deliver infrastructure projects to enhance and grow the visitor experience at our facilities and create jobs,” Ms Moss said.
“It is part of the Government’s $100 million investment to develop the NT into the world’s premier destination to experience Indigenous arts and culture.
“This investment includes a $50 million down payment towards the National Aboriginal Art Gallery and $20 million commitment to the National Aboriginal Cultural Centre in Alice Springs plus upgrades to galleries in Katherine, Tennant Creek and Arnhem Land.”
The Regional Stimulus grants program will provide regional and remote museums, galleries, art centres, community libraries, knowledge centres and keeping places across the NT access to $2 million for this second round of applications opening today.
The Regional Stimulus grants program supports upgrading arts and cultural facilities in key areas of the NT, providing increased focus and facilities to showcase arts and culture for tourism and regional economic development.
A highlight from the previous round included the NPY Women’s Council in Alice Springs who received funding for three projects including $99,600 for a new demountable artist studio Tjanpi Corner at Tjanpi Arts, $10,000 to improve Telling Our Story signage at Tjanpi Desert Weavers, and $10,000 for a shade structure at Tjanpi Arts.
The maximum amount that can be requested is $100,000 for infrastructure projects.
Small grants of up to $10 000 are also available to improve access, enhance existing facilities, improvements or promotion of existing infrastructure.
Applications will be open until June 18.
