About Digital Arts NT (DANT)
Digital Arts NT is an interdisciplinary collective of artists, scholars, and students dedicated to using digital technologies to showcase works by socially engaged innovators, and specifically Australian works that support vulnerable individuals and communities. We are interested in presenting creative works and research that aim to foster understanding and cooperation among different social identities, using artistic practice as a way to heal from individual and collective trauma, and deliver mentoring to foster success in higher education and research.
Digital Arts NT was founded on Larrakia land by residents in the Australian Northern Territory and both students and staff at Charles Darwin University. Digital Arts NT acknowledges the traditional owners of the lands on which we live and create. We pay our respect to Larrakia elders and to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples. We hope that our works will contribute to further respect of First Nations voices, truth-telling about Australian history, and Treaty.
The founding members of Digital Arts NT were Nicolas Bullot, Francis Diatschenko, Stephen Enciso, Sarah Pirrie, Kellie Pollard, Adelle Sefton-Rowston, Matthew van Roden, Michael Vernau.
Digital Arts NT received financial support from Charles Darwin University (Student Services and Amenities Fees program) and ARTLAB (College of Indigenous Futures, Arts, and Humanities).
