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 in the lives of children living in inner-Melbourne public housing, The focus to begin with was working with and supporting the kids living in the inner-city commission flats of Collingwood, Prahran and St Kilda.  

Your support can truly change a child’s life.
