firstdraft fosters the future of contemporary art

Firstdraft has played a key role in the early careers of artists including Mikala Dwyer, Claire Healy & Sean Cordeiro, Sarah Goffman, Tom Polo, Agatha Gothe-Snape, Mel O’Callaghan and David Capra. Supported by a sustainable business model and a board of volunteer directors, Firstdraft is able to showcase a program that is current, critical, ambitious, challenging and experimental.

 

your support

Firstdraft welcomes a community of patrons who believe in the critical importance of nurturing and championing emerging and experimental artists. Support from our donors directly funds artist fees.

Emerging artists are faced with significant costs to realise their work. Exhibitions at Firstdraft are now rent-free, and in 2017, support from government and private philanthropists, Firstdraft will provide even greater support for artists by paying artist fees.

This fee will encourage artists to be bold, ambitious, take risks and pursue local and international collaborations. It signals the endorsement of emerging and experimental practices as essential to the national cultural landscape.

Thanks to Creative Partnerships Australia, all gifts made before 19 May are matched through Plus1, meaning that you can double the impact of your gift.
