Incite Arts began its life in 1998 as the Alice Springs Youth Arts Group, formed by Jenine Mackay and Virginia Heydon, in response to a locally identified need for a vehicle to express young people’s stories in a valid, contemporary cultural context. The group then became an incorporated not-for-profit association and broadened its scope to include all who face barriers to arts engagement.

Incite has been advocating for the importance of the arts and disability sector for over 20 years. Through long-term practice, consultation and partnerships, Incite has become the peak access and inclusion organisation in Alice Springs, committed to accessible programs, events and venues.
