Douglas Shire Council (DSC) was very supportive of the event through the provision of funding, venues and personnel and the considerable work of the Arts and Culture Officer.
The event had additional support from local established environmental groups such as Tangaroa Blue Foundation, Great Barrier Reef Marine Legacy, Douglas Shire Sustainability Group and Rainforest Rescue. These groups were present during CRT and also provided education and support for the artists as they developed their works.
Tourism Port Douglas and Daintree (TPDD) provided significant in-kind publicity and marketing support through their networks. Arts Queensland, both through the Regional Arts Development Funds and the Regionals Arts Services Network provided partial funding for artists.
Significant in-kind contributions were made by the entire CRT team and DSC in the form of venue and equipment hire and publicity, Port Douglas and Daintree Tourism provided in-kind publicity and marketing and KickArts Contemporary Arts in Cairns provided in-kind loaned plinths and multimedia screens.
