Organisations We Have Supported
Case Study: Biennale of Sydney
Since its inception in 1973, the Biennale of Sydney, a non-profit organisation, has provided an international platform for innovative contemporary art, exhibiting the work of nearly 1800 artists from more than 100 countries.
The Biennale was the first to be established in the Asia-Pacific region and, alongside documenta and the Venice and São Paulo biennales, is one of the longest running exhibitions of its kind.
Utilising both museums and non-museum spaces such as Cockatoo Island and held every two years, the Biennale’s three-month long free exhibition and program of artist talks, performances, forums, guided tours and festival days is recognised as Australia’s most ambitious and well attended contemporary art event.
Case Study: Médecins Sans Frontieres
Médecins Sans Frontières is the world’s leading independent organisation for medical humanitarian aid. Every day 30,000 Médecins Sans Frontières field staff provide assistance to people caught in crises around the world.
Médecins Sans Frontières exists to save lives by providing medical aid where it is needed most – in armed conflicts, epidemics, famines and natural disasters. All these situations call for a rapid response with specialised medical and logistical help. But, they also run longer-term projects, tackling health crises and supporting people where the need is greatest. They currently have projects running in almost 70 countries.
Case Study: Triple Care Farm
Triple Care Farm is an award-winning youth rehab facility located in NSW’s Southern Highlands, which helps to rehabilitate 100 young people each year suffering with substance abuse, mental illness, homelessness and family breakdown.
The Farm’s approach is best described as holistic. Over the course of 12 weeks, staff not only provide treatment for addiction but also seek to address underlying issues and contributing factors to the young person’s situation.
Triple Care Farm is one of the most successful programs of its kind in Australia, with the majority of graduates moving into jobs, apprenticeships or further education. At the end of their stay, the students graduate from the program and are placed in supportive environments such as group homes, back with families or independent living. Community support networks are established and follow-up continues for three to six months after the students leave the Farm as part of the ‘Aftercare’ program.
