Artback NT is a dynamic organisation bringing together Northern Territory artists with presenters seeking authentic arts and cultural experiences for their audiences and communities. We are the gateway to sharing the rich cultures, stories and art of the Territory with Australia and the rest of the world.

We ignite sparks in a creative Northern Territory. We develop, produce, curate and present ambitious, professional and energetic work to and from some of Australia’s most remote locations. From visual arts to performing arts, music, traditional and contemporary dance, we recognise the importance of identity, connection to culture and the intrinsic value of arts and culture to community health and wellbeing. Deep connections with communities inform our approach to arts and cultural development.

We activate creative participation, revealing an entire new world for regional, remote and very remote communities who are often left off the touring map. In 2018, Artback NT’s staff and artists travelled an extraordinary 1,375,033 kilometres, to deliver a total of 60 performances and 254 workshops reaching audiences of 111,834 locally, nationally and internationally. The organisation delivered to 107 venues and facilitated 51 school events.

We engaged 506 artists throughout the year and 68%, or 348 of the artists engaged, were from remote or very remote locations throughout the Northern Territory (this figure excluded Darwin, Katherine, Tennant Creek and Alice Springs).

Since 1996, Artback NT has reached audiences of over 2,744,155.

From the Tiwi Island footy club to the National Gallery of Australia, we reach into every corner of this country. We provide communities and artists with new ways to share their stories, build respect for their work and, in turn, generate lasting positive community impact.

We are the conduit for local, national and international audiences who are seeking work that provides access into the talent and passion of an Australia far beyond the highway.

We want to continue delivering art to and from remote and regional areas; linking communities, empowering artists and presenting quality cultural experiences while providing training and employment outcomes. We can't do it without your support and invite you to join us in achieving a sustainable, creative and inclusive future.
