Artists on Tour

Artback NT has brought together leading artists from around the Territory to deliver workshops across a range of art forms. Our Artists on Tour initiative is a high quality program that supports the development of established artists and provides your community with access to their skills and talents.

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. Artback NT will help facilitate this conversation as required and subsidise costs through grant funds where possible. Artback NT’s Artists on Tour program is also eligible for Sports Vouchers.

You can explore the different artistic options offered by each artist below.

We’re really looking forward to working with you to bring engaging and adventurous arts and cultural activities to your community.

Please note – Artists on Tour will be available from August to November 2016.
