Photography 500: Curate, Collect, Conserve

Photography 500

Join Photography 500 and create a powerful platform for us to:

Curate - Support Australian photographers and champion their careers through MGA’s ‘The Luminaries’, a series dedicated to celebrating and profiling exceptional Australian photographers.

Collect – Acquire work of national cultural significance for MGA’s collection, the only public collection solely dedicated to Australian photography.

Conserve – Conserve and protect MGA’s collection for future generations.

Photography 500 brings together a circle of donors to enable MGA to showcase a seminal Australian photographer, acquire work of national significance and conserve MGA’s collection for future generations.

Help us raise $50,000 before 31 May 2019 and Creative Partnerships Australia through Plus1 will match it, doubling your gift and its impact.

Imagine what we can do with $100,000 and the significant impact it will have on MGA, our collection and our artists.

Join the Photography 500 by making a gift of $500 or more to help us achieve our target.

Photography 500 is supported by Creative Partnerships Australia through Plus1
