Since its inception in 2000, the Gasworks Foundation Patrons Fund has supported the artistic program of Gasworks Arts Park in addition to enlivening the surrounding parkland with permanent sculptures and display cases showcasing the work of onsite resident artists.  Such permanent statements of artistic intent contribute to Gasworks Arts Park’s reputation as a venue with access for supporters of all art forms (performing, physical and visual).

With the generous financial support of donors, the Foundation continues to find new and innovative ways to support artists and audiences, throughout the City of Port Phillip and beyond.  Artist prizes of cash and professional development for From Nature and Circus Showdown enable and encourage artists to experiment and further develop their works.  In this way, Gasworks becomes a springboard from which artists launch into their careers.

Circus Showdown 2017 winners, Social Staples are all certificate IV students at NICA.  Director Harley Mann commented on the experience:

“The Gasworks Circus Showdown was one of the best performance experiences that we have been a part of. It's a great chance for new or experimental circus works to stand on stage and test their material in a friendly and enjoyable environment. It is one of the only opportunities where artists can perform new and developing shows without costing an arm and a leg. The entire Gasworks team are kind and professional, and are very willing to help you manage and learn all the behind the scenes work necessary to put on a performance.”

In 2018, the Foundation committed to sponsoring 2 new outreach programs at Gasworks: Kid’s Holiday Outreach Program which enables families who could otherwise not afford to attend, to enjoy a day of individually curated kid’s workshops and performances at Gasworks.  It is expected over 100 children will benefit from this initiative in 2018.  The Foundation also sponsored workshops and a Dance Battle facilitated by leading Australian hip hop ensemble Elements Collective.  This initiative provided an opportunity for youths within the City of Port Phillip and beyond to positively engage with an arts venue.

The Foundation invites you to make a financial contribution towards showcasing performing and visual artists within Gasworks Arts Park.
