The successful MATCH Lab participants will take part in a two-day professional development clinic Raising Money for your Art in November 2021, supporting them to build their fundraising skills, gain a broader arts business knowledge, and create sustainable sources of revenue for their work. Following on from this workshop, they will complete a fundraising campaign with Creative Partnerships Australia matching what they raise dollar-for-dollar up to $5,000 per project.

We wish all this years’ MATCH Lab recipients success with their upcoming fundraising campaigns and look forward to seeing them run between late November and 31 May 2022.
