Public Spaces Beautification Program

Posted on 18 Apr, 2023

The Northern Territory Government is helping locals beautify the Alice Springs CBD and suburbs with a Public Space Beautification Program.

The Pub­lic Space Beau­ti­fi­ca­tion Pro­gram is an ideas con­test open to any­one in the Alice Springs region with an idea for cre­at­ing, improv­ing or acti­vat­ing our town’s pub­lic spaces. NTG is look­ing for your best ideas to make the town more colour­ful and acti­vat­ed with no idea too big or small.

Acti­vate Alice will invest $200,000 to make some ideas a real­i­ty with the pro­gram open to any­one with an idea, be it an organ­i­sa­tion, not-for-prof­it com­pa­ny, indi­vid­ual or gov­ern­ment agency. 

The idea sub­mis­sion phase clos­es on 21 April at 12pm. Fol­low­ing the clo­sure, the Acti­vate Alice Work­ing Group will select the top ideas to progress to a pub­lic vot­ing phase. The suc­cess­ful ideas will receive a share of the $200,000 with the max­i­mum grant size being $20,000.

Win­ners will be required to imple­ment the project them­selves, includ­ing all approvals and per­mits. The Acti­vate Alice team can help work through this if needed.

To sub­mit your idea, head to the Have Your Say web­site here and answer the ques­tions on the sub­mis­sion form. You can also email through any ques­tions you may have to Activate.​Alice@​nt.​gov.​au.
