This funding, through the Festivals Australia program, recognises the importance of these events in encouraging creativity and in providing a boost to local economies, with many festivals drawing visitors from far and wide. Darwin's Evolution at the Snap it Up! Festival in Darwin is one of the recipients of this funding. The Festival will offer a series of workshops for young people investigating the evolution of 'our town' with images, installations and short performances. The closing date for the next round of Festivals Australia funding is 15 February 2009.
