Current Campaign

With the support of Creative Partnerships Australia, in early 2020 The Unconformity will start a fundraising campaign towards a range of new investments into the West Coast creative and cultural sector.

The project aims to:

— resource the appointment of cultural development staff as a source of advice, support and enablement for our community;

— see investments made into a public cultural base, for use by artists, community members and partners;

— develop a fund to support cultural infrastructure, the creation of new work, and professional development support for artists.

Funds raised before 31 May 2021 will be matched up to $50,000 by Creative Partnership Australia's Plus1 program. The Unconformity will commence a fundraising campaign for the program in mid 2020.

To find out more, or to donate towards the project, please contact us by emailing
