Help us secure $10,000 in matched funding to launch the NT’s own literary journal

Thanks to Creative Partnerships Australia through their MATCHLab program, we have an opportunity to secure $10,000 in matched funding to fund the publication of pilot online and print editions of the Territory’s very own literary journal. We plan to publish the first online edition of the journal in September 2019. But we need your support!

Today we launch our fundraising campaign to support the creation of the NT’s very own publication to showcase storytelling by NT storytellers. All funds raised will go directly to paying writers and artists industry rates for their contributions to the journal, supporting the livelihoods of NT storytellers and the NT’s arts industry. We need to raise $10,000 by May 31st 2019 to secure the matched funding through MATCHLab. Every dollar we raise will be matched dollar for dollar.

To date, the project has been supported by grants from ArtsNT and Charles Darwin University and we have already secured funding from the Regional Arts Fund towards the print pilot edition of the journal. We now need the community’s support to secure the MATCHLab funds and launch the journal.

There are four different way you can show your support:

  2. Through our Patreon page you can pledge a recurring monthly donation to the project, and not only will you be supporting Territory writers, but as thanks there are some great rewards on offer. Please not that donations through Patreon are in US dollars, and are not tax deductible.
  3. Contact Raelke Grimmer directly at hello@borderlands.cdu.edu.au to discuss corporate sponsorship opportunities.
