11 The Government has emphasised the importance of making arts and culture a part of Territorians lives. The Territorys libraries, archives and museums collect, protect and make accessible Territorians cultural heritage. The valuable collections in these cultural institutions have inspired many artistic and creative endeavours. To maximise community engagement artistic activity needs to be accessible and affordable, and must have relevance and impact for Territorians. In Australia audience development and arts marketing have become increasingly sophisticated disciplines, improving the clarity with which arts and cultural organisations understand and target their communities, through segmentation and the use of digital media. Beyond Darwin valuable cultural infrastructure exists in Alice Springs, Katherine, Nhulunbuy and Tennant Creek and elsewhere in the Territory. The cultural assets throughout the Territory can continue to build community engagement. Signature events such as the Darwin Festival and the Territorys many regional and remote community festivals from Barunga and Garma, to the Alice Desert Festival , Milpirri in Lajamanu and Desert Harmony in Tennant Creek - can leverage their profile to reach out to new sections of the community. The ACP will need to reflect the importance of regional and remote arts and access to equitable resources. Milpirri 2014 Lajamanu Tracks Dance, photo by Peter Eve
