To further commemorate this special year, I am especially pleased to also support the compilation of this catalogue which details the total collection of work by Territorians acquired through the Alice Craft Award over the last twenty years. The importance of such documentation cannot be understated. This catalogue plays two valuable roles: . It acknowledges the high quality of work produced locally, and . It also provides an important record of the development of craft work in the Northern Territory. I congratulate the artists whose work forms part of this exciting collection and trust that it will be an inspiration to future generations. I am also pleased to advise that the Northern Territory Crafts Council will hold the lease over a craft shop in the foyer of the new Parliament House. The shop will provide the opportunity to showcase and sell works by Territory artists. 19
