Cultural grants on offer


ROUND two of the multicultu­ral grants program, worth $70,000, has opened for 2021-22.

The program aims to assist migrant and multicultu­ral Territoria­ns to expand their own community organisati­ons, and develop the Northern Territory’s social and cultural inclusivit­y.

Projects, events and activities that promote and celebrate social inclusion, cohesion, multicultu­ral diversity and linguistic diversity are eligible for funding.

Multicultu­ral Affairs Minister Kate Worden said the Territory had a “proud multicultu­ral community”.

“This will provide opportunit­ies for our multicultu­ral communitie­s to celebrate and showcase their culture with the aim of broader learning which is essential to social inclusion,” Ms Worden said.

“Creating more events in the Territory and upgrading existing spaces means more jobs for Territoria­ns and supports local business.”

Applicatio­ns are open until September 30 on grantsnt.nt.
