The second Northern Territory Arts Conference held in October 1993 in Alice Springs was attended by 152 artists and arts enthusiasts. The agenda addressed matters raised by the arts community and was aided by the inclusion of outstanding guest speakers on topics including Managing the Arts, Public Art, Promotion and Marketing the arts, and workshops specific to each art-form. Indicative of the Conference's reception was the strong call for further such events. I believe that these general meetings have great value, and have indicated that I will support future events. As a result, in November this year, a regional forum will be held in Tennant Creek. Arising from the first Northern Territory Arts Conference, I appointed a working party, convened to review existing processes of policy development and assessment of grants and to discuss the appropriateness of introducing new structures and systems. The working party recommended the establishment of an Arts Policy Advisory Board. 11
