DCA granted Key Producer funding by Australia Council

Darwin Community Arts was granted funding by the Australia Council for the Arts under its Key Organisations - Community Partnerships (Key Producer) grants program. The funding is worth $135,000 p.a. for six years commencing 1 January 2014. DCA was one of 14 organisations to be offered this funding. As a Key Producer, DCA will offer a "Community Arts and Cultural Development program to democratise the making and sharing of art in the Darwin Region". According to the Australia Council, the "Key Producer category is for organisations that have demonstrated outstanding success and leadership in community arts and cultural development. These organisations will produce high quality art, both in and with communities, to ensure that these communities have opportunities to actively participate in cultural development and the creation of artistic work".
