Artists on Tour

Our Artists on Tour initiative brings together leading artists from across the Territory to deliver creative workshops in schools and communities around the NT! Supporting the development of emerging and established artists, young people, and the community within their regional and remote location, Artists on Tour is an exciting offering and one we’re proud to make possible. We launched Artists on Tour in 2016, presenting 72 workshops at 26 venues to an audience of 715. In 2017 this grew to 145 workshops in 25 venues to an audience of 1,141.

If you’re from arts and community organisations or a school in the NT, have a look at the workshops and get in touch! There’s the option to book one-off or ongoing holiday workshops, and you can pick from a pre-existing workshop or we can tailor one that’s specific to your group’s skills, age and time frame.

Prices for each workshop will differ depending on the length of engagement and location, however as a guide, artist fees will be $400 per day plus travel and accommodation. You’re encouraged to work with other partners in the community to maximise the time artists can spend in your community in order to share costs. We can help facilitate this conversation as required and help subsidise costs through grant funds where possible.

Please note, our Artists on Tour initiative is eligible for urban and remote sports vouchers.
