Young Australian Artists
ADFAS Young Arts
ADFAS Young Arts philanthropy enhances arts opportunities for young people in Australia.
ADFAS societies may choose to be sole sponsors of a project or combine with other community organisations in joint ventures.
Young Arts projects are diverse; some fund an individual whilst others support groups. Recipients range from pre-schoolers to tertiary students.
Young Arts encompasses literature, music, photography, performing and fine arts.
Current ADFAS Young Arts projects fund:
- Scholarships to a conservatorium
- Provision of musical instruments
- Exhibitions showcasing secondary school student achievements in Visual Arts education
- Workshops and masterclasses
- Arts experiences for young people with sensory impairment
- Arts related opportunities for young people suffering financial disadvantage or geographic isolation
- Initiatives to preserve the cultural skills and language of indigenous Australians
- Excursions to museums, galleries and historic buildings
Young Arts Funding Makes a Difference
In 2019, over $76,000 was contributed to Young Arts projects.
Most of our Societies offer a Young Arts program supporting a mix of both individuals and community groups.
