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

We need your help to raise $50,000 which we will invest in leading First Nations 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, they match!

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 work with our team and the artists on new programming.

ADC has a strong and proud history of supporting First Nations artists in important exhibitions toured nationally and internationally along with mentoring and skill development programs.

We know that the projects led by our First Nations artists and arts professionals are critically acclaimed. We also know that these projects better reflect tradition and culture when First Nations people lead the project and our results are testament to this.

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 we can turn into $2 and double your impact to support our 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 and more are tax-deductible.
