Celebrating Aboriginal Culture on Australia Day
The NT Government is committed to evolving Australia Day to ensure it meaningfully acknowledges, recognises and celebrates Aboriginal culture and Aboriginal people’s contribution to our Northern Territory identity.
The Northern Territory is leading the way in supporting a mix of traditional, new and different ways that Aboriginal people and community want to celebrate and commemorate.
The Celebrating Aboriginal Culture (Australia Day) Grant aims to provide funding to Aboriginal Territorians and in particular remote communities to recognise and support how Aboriginal people want to celebrate and commemorate culture, language, history and achievements.
The grant supports the Northern Territory in how we celebrate Australia Day, by striking a balance between commemorating and respectfully celebrating Australia Day. that is inclusive of Aboriginal Territorians.
It’s all about recognising Aboriginal culture, language, history and achievements – past, present and future, our way this Australia Day.
Grant applications are now open.
