Celebrating Aboriginal Culture

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 national identity.

The NT Government is looking at ways to evolve Australia Day to ensure it meaningfully acknowledges, recognises and celebrates Aboriginal culture and Aboriginal people’s contribution to our national identity.

The Territory will lead the way in exploring new ways to commemorate and celebrate, with the establishment of a Celebrating Aboriginal Culture (Australia Day) Consultative Committee comprising key Aboriginal Territorians.

As part of these celebrations in 2018, an inaugural Celebrating Aboriginal Culture (Australia Day) Grant Program is available, with individuals, organisations and businesses able to apply for a grant of up to $5000.  This grant can go towards an event or activity that helps celebrate Aboriginal culture, language and history, and enhance the overall experience of Australia Day across the Territory.

Applications open 21 November 2017 and close 7 December 2017.
