Australia Council has announced significant changes to its programs due to the unexpected budget changes for 2015-2016. A major change that affects Darwin Community Arts and other arts organisations in the Northern Territory and around Australia is the suspension of the six-year funding program for organisations. Other changes include:
Everyone has the right freely to participate in the cultural life of the community, to enjoy the arts and to share in scientific advancement and its benefits. Everyone has the right to the protection of the moral and material interests resulting from any scientific, literary or artistic production of which he is the author.
This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body.
