Incite work recognised by NT Human Rights Awards

The NT Human Rights Awards celebrate notable activities in the Northern Territory or by Territorians, which advance human rights.

Central Australia’s own community–led arts organisation received the 2017 Fitzgerald Diversity Award. The Award recognises organisations whose activities focus on promoting, protecting and fulfilling the human rights and equal opportunity of diverse communities in the NT.

Incite is humbled and grateful for this Award recognizing and acknowledging our commitment and passion for creating opportunities to celebrate the diverse Alice Springs and Central Australian community.

We are particularly committed to advocacy and leadership in the art and disability space. Access and inclusion, as a fundamental human right, is at the heart of Incite’s practice.

Incite collaborates and responds to community, its creative needs and aspirations; builds strong (community) partnerships to explore ideas and creates exceptional art with the community, by the community and for the community.

We thank the communities we are privileged to work with, the Anti-Discrimination Commission, the Awards Committee and offer our sincere congratulations to the other Award recipients!
