AKC History

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.

Your support can change a child’s life.
