Metro Arts is a unique and robust multidisciplinary organisation dedicated to professional independent artists and their work. With 40 years of history behind it, Metro Arts is a base and a hub for independent artists and the community, and a launching pad for new artistic ventures.
With less than a third of Metro Arts’ funding coming from government sources, the breadth of its operation and achievements are testament to its entrepreneurial approach to generating funds to support cultural activities such as the running Metro Arts’ highly successful espresso bar. However donations from the community remain an important source of funds, most importantly, to support the maintenance of our heritage listed building and the establishment of new professional development programs for artists.
The current focus of our fundraising efforts is to lift the lift, providing reliable access to the six floors of our beautiful heritage building. We need to raise $250, 000 to purchase a new lift and thanks to Creative Partnerships Australia every $1 of our first $50, 000 will be matched as part of their Plus1 Initiative.
Please consider engaging with us and being a part of Metro Arts’ vibrant artistic community. Donations over $2.00 are tax-deductible.
