Support un Projects
Reflecting on the early un days, Lily Hibberd — artist and founder of un Magazine — notes that 'despite the domain of arts writing being more grounded and less glamorous than an art gallery, and its having a smaller audience than a movie or concert, arts writing is a salve for troubled times.' And we are most certainly in times that are troubled ...
un Projects publishes ambitious, daring and critical art writing. We support new and diverse voices, and are committed to generating dialogue about, and building audiences for, local independent art.
As mainstream Australian media offers less and less coverage of visual art – particularly the independent sector – the role of un Projects in fostering critical dialogue, and encouraging excellence and innovation around contemporary visual arts, is increasingly important.
Committed to inclusivity, everything that we publish is free, but ALL contributors are paid. Your generous donation will help us pay the artists, writers, editors, designers and mentors we work with. As the grateful recipient of a Plus1 grant, we are also excited to let you know that any donation you make during this fundraiser will be matched dollar for dollar, a great opportunity for you to see your money go further!
Donations can be be made online here (and are fully tax deductible).
