Minister for the Arafura Games, Ken Vowles, is calling for event producers to put forward their Expressions of Interest to produce the Opening and Closing Celebrations of the Games.

“We made an election promise to bring back the Arafura Games and they will return from April 26 to May 5 next year.” Minister for the Arafura Games Ken Vowles said.

“Opening and Closing Celebrations will create local jobs and celebrate the connection between the nations competing in the Arafura Games and the Northern Territory, as well as showcase our incredible arts and culture sector.

Opening Celebration will take place on the evening of Friday, April 26, before the sporting competition kicks off the following morning on Saturday, April 27.

Closing Celebration will take place on the evening of Sunday, May 5, once the sporting competition has wrapped up.

“Opening and Closing Celebrations will take place at an iconic Top End location the beautiful Darwin Waterfront, so event producers will have plenty of space and inspiration to guide their ideas.” Assistant Minister for Bringing Back the Arafura Games Kate Worden said.

Simple Expression of Interest process will identify event producers who have the capacity to deliver the two celebrations within a total budget of $500,000.

Expression of Interest opens today, Monday, July 30, and closes on Thursday, August 16.
