Having fun on the Saturday afternoon touring paddle with Patterson Lakes Canoe Club. Good preparation for the Canadian Wilderness Artist Residency. Please donate to my fundraising campaign ‘Australia to the Arctic’ with the Australian Cultural Fund to support my participation on the residency. All donations are Tax Deductible and need to be finalised by the 25 June 2017.

Australia to the Arctic

My  ‘Australia to the Arctic’ fundraising campaign is quickly drawing to its end on the 25 June. Would you please donate to support my participation in the Canadian Wilderness Artists Residency, all donations $2 and over are Tax Deductible.  Please follow this link to make a donation to my project. https://australianculturalfund.org.au/projects/australia-to-the-arctic/

The Australian Cultural Fund is a fundraising platform for Australian artists, it is managed by Creative Partnerships Australia and was established by the Australian Government in 2003 to encourage donations to the arts.  Donations over $2 are tax deductible through the ACF, and supporters get the chance to make a real difference to the work of Australian artists.

I am the first Australian to be selected to participate on the Canadian Wilderness Artist Residency in the Yukon Territory this July and August.  I was chosen from 42 applicants to paddle in sub-arctic Canada 735 kilometres down the Yukon River from Whitehorse to Dawson City, arriving just in time to participate in the Riverside Arts Festival.
