Strength from NAVA through this extreme flood emergency

As severe weather warnings continue this week, please know that NAVA Members from all across Australia are standing right beside you.

Dear friends and colleagues,

From everyone at NAVA, we wish you and your communities every strength through this extreme flood emergency. 

Artists’ Benevolent Fund

Applications for the Artists’ Benevolent Fund will open later this week to Australian artists in crisis as a result of flood, fire, serious illness, major accident or some other unexpected catastrophe. Funds will be distributed based on guidelines determined with guidance from the Artists’ Benevolent Fund’s original trustees and will be assessed by a panel nominated by NAVA. Applications will close 11.59pm, 10 April 2022, with an expected turnaround of two weeks.

You can help

As NAVA continues to call on the government for crisis support for visual artists, we are inviting donations to the Artists’ Benevolent Fund so that artists can be offered some assistance in times of emergency.

To date, the Fund is possible only with the kindness of our supporters. Please consider helping artists in need with an urgent donation, however small – and please share the call with your friends and colleagues far and wide.

The National Association for the Visual Arts is a tax-deductible fund listed on the Australian Government's Register of Cultural Organisations. Donations of $2.00 or more are tax-deductible.

Donate via PayPal

PayPal does not charge you for this donation. 100% of your donation will go to the Artists' Benevolent Fund.

At this difficult time, please know that support is near:

With all our very best,
NAVA team
