The Northern Territory Government is offering $200,000 in grants to Territory artists, art groups, and community organisations.

Minister for Arts and Museums, Matt Conlan said the Northern Territory Arts Grants Program (AGP) aims to increase the number of Territorians participating in the arts.

“The program provides community members with funds to develop their skills and promote their work.” Mr. Conlan said.

“The grants are available to support initiatives that further the vision of exploring, expressing and showcasing Northern Territory identity through arts and culture.”

“The most recent project round saw 18 successful applicants from a diverse range of arts backgrounds including dance, literature, visual arts and music.”

“I congratulate the grant recipients from the previous project round and I am confident the financial support will greatly assist the terrific work they are doing.”

“I encourage people from all arts backgrounds to apply for the available grants.”

Applicants are encouraged to apply online for the AGP Project Round 2 from 17 October 2012 with applications due by 14 November.
