Celebrating exemplary individuals from Australia’s philanthropy and business partnerships with the arts.

Creative Australia has acknowledged the recipients of the 2024 Partnership Awards at a ceremony at the State Library of New South Wales this evening, Tuesday 18 June.

The awards celebrate exemplary individuals from Australia’s philanthropy, business and arts sectors who show leadership in private giving, philanthropy and business partnerships with the arts.

The award recipients are inspiring advocates who encourage others to give to the arts. Their generosity contributes to the social impact the creative industries make on the lives of Australians.

“Our Partnership Awards recognise some remarkable people who actively champion arts partnerships and investment. They generously create opportunities and access to the arts for all Australians.” 

Creative Australia CEO Adrian Collette AM said:

“This year’s inspiring Partnership Award recipients are committed leaders who actively collaborate to connect Australians with the creative sector. It is wonderful to see the vibrant possibilities when philanthropy and business support the arts.”
