The Regional Arts Fund is part of the Australian Government’s Arts and Cultural Development Program that supports participation in, and access to, Australia’s arts and culture through developing and supporting cultural expression.

The Regional Arts Fund is managed by Regional Arts Australia (RAA) on behalf of the Australian Government, and managed in the Northern Territory by NT Regional Arts (NTRA). NTRA is a registered business name of Darwin Community Arts Inc, a not-for-profit, incorporated association that focuses on grassroots community arts and cultural development.
