Support 4A

4A is a non-profit organisation championed by patrons and supporters through tax deductible donations

Our patrons and supporters enable us to deliver programs that support artists, cultural diversity and anti-racism in the arts, ground-breaking exhibitions, professional development and educational outreach. Since 1996, 4A has successfully delivered complex and engaging contemporary art projects in Australia and overseas.

Donations are received by the AAAA INC Fund of the The Asian Australian Artists Association Inc (4A) which has Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR) status. All donations of $2 or more are tax deductible.

Patrons Program

Our Patrons Program is based on a system of auspicious numbers ending in 8. In many Asian cultures, the number 8 and its combinations are considered lucky. In Cantonese, 8 is phonetically similar to the words fortune and wealth. In pledging these auspicious amounts you can share your prosperity and help 4A achieve our programs.

Our Patrons assist us to:

  • Produce innovative and groundbreaking exhibitions
  • Present work by leading artists from the Asia Pacific region
  • Develop the careers of emerging artists, assisting them to produce new work at critical points of their development and to provide curatorial feedback to contextualise their practice in contemporary Asian art discourse
  • Facilitate networks between Australian artists and the artists and critics of the Asia Pacific region

Donations of $888 and over are recognised under our Patrons Program. Our acknowledgement of your support will occur on an annual basis. We encourage you to support us over multiple years.
