Help ADC raise $50,000 for First Nations programs in our 2022 Appeal!

UPDATE: We have one week left before the appeal ends on 31 May and have already raised 75% of our goal thanks to many generous supporters!

We need your help to raise $50,000 which we will invest to work with First Nations artists to create opportunities across our creative programs.

Every dollar donated by 31 May 2022 will be matched by Creative Partnerships Australia through the Plus 1 program.

Every dollar you give is doubled!

This is an historic opportunity to expand ADC platforms led by First Nations artists and arts professionals.  We’re employing a First Nations Creative Producer to lead this work with artists to develop new programming.

ADC has a strong and proud history of working with First Nations artists to create important exhibitions toured nationally and internationally along with mentoring and skill development programs. The work that First Nations artists have created with ADC has added immense value and been transformative for audiences and highly valued by our team.

Projects led and produced by First Nations artists and arts professionals are critically acclaimed. These projects better reflect tradition and culture when First Nations people lead the project and the results are testament to this.

In 2018 and 2019 two First Nations creative professionals worked with ADC in the role of First Nations Creative Producer. Read about their experiences here.

Please consider making a donation towards our 2022 matched funding appeal - knowing that every dollar you give is doubled!

Here are some ways to double your impact in 2022:

  • $20,000 (becomes $40,000) to help fund the ongoing employment of ADC’s First Nations Creative Producer.
  • $10,000 (becomes $20,000) to help fund fees for artists to produce works and all of the expenses associated with production and presentation.
  • $5,000  (becomes $10000) to help deliver workshops for artists in regional areas.
  • $2500 (becomes $5000) to help fund First Nations artists to deliver a series of public programs and workshops
  • $1000 (becomes $2000) to help fund an education resource to inspire young audiences through making and design.

You get the idea!

Donations of any amount will add up to make a big impact. Every dollar becomes $2 and doubles your impact to support First Nations artists.

We are grateful for the generosity of donors who support ADC to showcase the work of craftspeople and designers for audiences across Australia.

Donations of $2 or more are tax-deductible.
