Supporting charities that promote and support Australian music and the arts, scholarships, wildlfe, and medical services
The Australian Charity Art Auction will be staged at Australia House to raise funds for several charities in the UK that support and promote young Australians studying in the UK, to the promotion of educational and cultural exchanges between the UK and Australia, and to furthering the work of iconic Australian charities.
The artworks auctioned will be by Australian artists or which feature Australian subjects and theme – and donated from private collections, principally in the UK. The artworks will initially be offered for on-line silent auction bidding throughout a two week period leading up to the final event at Australia House, on Tuesday 28 February 2017. They will be on display for two days leading up to the event, and a small number, selected by the Advisory Committee, will be offered at the event by live auction, to be conducted by a Christie’s auctioneer.
The event will include a reception and a night of entertainment (a concert by award winning Australian musicians and singers) and art.
