Annual Appeal 2019

Over the past few years we have seen great improvements to the facilities and programs at Artspace Mackay thanks to the support of individuals, funding bodies and business partnerships developed through the Artspace Mackay Foundation. Our vision of a community empowered through an engagement with own distinctive cultures and its increased knowledge and understanding of art and design is only achievable through the collective generosity of our many supporters donating amounts appropriate to them.

One such exciting project your funding will support is the 2019 Alfredo & Isabel Aquilizan Project Take root (Colony): Project Another Country. This internationally-acclaimed artist couple work with communities around the world to create large-scale installations from simple materials such as recycled cardboard. Artists Alfredo & Isabel will work with Mackay primary school students and new migrants to create hundreds of tiny cardboard dwellings, which will all come together in an incredibly large-scale art installation in Artspace Mackay’s main gallery in June 2019.

To reach our aspirations this year our funding goal is $10,000 and today we ask you to consider a one-year donation or even a three-year pledge to the Artspace Mackay Foundation Annual Appeal, to continue to assist our gallery to meet its ambitious objectives, and further engage, enrich and inspire our community through extraordinary arts and educational experiences.

Financial contributions of all sizes play a vital role in Artspace Mackay's sustained success. You can give with confidence, knowing all funds raised from your donation will be directly re-invested into Mackay’s community through Artspace Mackay. The Foundation is registered with the Australian Taxation Office as a Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR) and therefore all donations of $2 and over are fully tax deductible.
