Working for Peace Through the Arts
From time to time the Peace Foundation is able to award minor grants of up to $2,000 each. These small grants can make a big difference.
We welcome ad hoc requests for minor grants for arts projects that meet the objectives of the Peace Foundation.
Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with details about your artistic endeavour including (project timeline and dates, budget, and outcomes).
Examples of past Minor Grant recipients:
- The Hopes Café Peace Path – during 2017 Refugee Week, the Peace Foundation contributed to the development of The Hopes Café Peace Path. The path leads the way to the café that services 10,000 meals a year to refugees, asylum seekers, homeless people and the general community, and highlights messages of peace and tolerance. The Peace Path project involved community artist Marisha Mathews-Noori, refugees and other volunteers.
- The Don Dunstan Foundation for the 2018 Social Change Guide to the Adelaide Fringe and Adelaide Festival.
- The Pacific Islanders Council of SA for the Blackbirding Exhibition at the Hawke Centre. The exhibition reflected on the 19th Century labour traffic (known as blackbirding) of South Pacific Islanders by colonial powers to cotton and sugar plantations in Australia, Fiji, Samoa, and even Peru; a very sad part of Australian history.
- The 2014 Come Out Festival for Building Bridges, involving six disadvantaged secondary schools in flag-making workshops. The flags were installed around the Festival Centre for the duration of Come Out.
