Annual AKC Art Auction
Thursday 2 December, 2021
6.30pm, for 7.00pm start
Over the last 28 years, the Artist for Kids’ Culture (AKC) Auction has become an iconic fund-raiser and source of artistic expression, bringing together the work of prominent Australian artists and raising funds to make a direct, positive impact on the lives on children experiencing hardship. For the second year we are heading to MEMO Music Hall in St Kilda – see you there!
In 1994, Jo Darvall, David Larwill and Bernie Jones founded Artists for Kids culture with the help of a group of artists and friends who wanted to make a positive difference to the lives of children living in inner-Melbourne public housing. Their initial focus was on the kids living at the inner-city commission flats of Collingwood, Prahran and St Kilda.
Since then AKC has helped 1000’s of children across Australia take part in joyful, exciting, life-changing, fun and rewarding activities and experiences funded by artists, sponsors and volunteers.
