Following the success of our event on fundraising held last year, the PGAV is again partnering with Creative Partnerships Australia to deliver a one-day workshop on fundraising specifically for visual arts organisations. 

Fundraising for the Visual Arts Workshop will provide the essentials of fundraising for small to medium galleries. You will learn what motivates donors, the ins and outs of fundraising events, together with best practice examples of fundraising at public galleries.
