Talks & Workshops


From strong foundations to future success –

what is the road forward for arts philanthropy?

2014 marks the 25th anniversary of the Art Gallery of Western Australia Foundation. Formed in 1989 by a passionate group of arts advocates, the Foundation has helped AGWA purchase over 4,500 works (approx. 20% of the State Art Collection), and in more recent times funded over 80% of all AGWA’s acquisitions.

ABC RN is partnering with AGWA to bring Books and Arts Daily west in a special broadcast event to celebrate AGWA’s milestone and discuss what’s next for arts philanthropy in WA, and the wider arts world.

In a toughening economic climate and ethically accountable society, join Books and Arts Daily presenter Michael Cathcart, AGWA Director Stefano Carboni, and passionate philanthropists and business leaders Michael Chaney, Nicola Forrest and Warwick Hemsley, for a topical discussion on the role that philanthropy can, or should, play in the future of the arts.

12 noon, Wednesday 12 November
The event is free to attend, but seating is limited.
