2024 is shaping up to be a great year for the Wayward Woman Giving Fund. 

In January we held our first fundraising event - a Silent Auction with 22 unique items of visual art and fashion donated by 22 amazingly talented Melbourne artists. Every item in the auction was handmade and were all won with much joy by our wonderful guests.  

This auction raised just over $2000, and we now plan to hold a Silent Auction on a yearly basis.

Community Arts and Cultural Development

Community Arts and Cultural Development (CACD) involves artists working collaboratively with communities for the purpose of social change through art and culture. 

Engagement with the arts can have powerful impacts on health, wellbeing and the strengthening of communities…The role of the arts in exploring and communicating social concerns, giving voice to hidden issues and allowing self-expression is also a major contributor to health and wellbeing.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Projects

As part of our annual funding round Wayward Woman Giving Fund is committed to supporting non-profit Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander organisations and projects that focus on our key area of Community Arts and Cultural Development.

We aim to undertake thorough research and follow correct first nations protocol to ensure that we are being culturally respectful in this area.
