Bundanon Trust is supported by these operating funds as part of the Australian Government’s Department of Communication and the Arts.
The team also work hard to raise over 45 per cent of its revenue from user-pays services and other funding sources including the University of Wollongong, the Borland Bequest, Landcare Australia, the Australia Council for the Arts, Create NSW and a range of other public and private bodies.
“There’s no doubt that without the funding from the federal government each year over 7000 students and 300 artists would miss out on the magical experience of Bundanon,” said Bundanon Trust CEO Deborah Ely.
“We’re a globally unique organisation with a $43 million art collection and we love calling the Shoalhaven home.
“We ensure locals are able to visit the site year round.”
Bundanon is open every Sunday and hosts concerts and festivals, as well as bringing leading Australian artists and experts to the region.
