Board Director - Australia China Art & Culture Foundation
Non-profit and non-governmental organisation which promotes art and cultural collaborations for Australian and Asian artists to showcase, connect and empower. In 2016, we took 4 Australian leading artists (Fiona Lowry, Jason Benjamin, Clinton Nain and Tim Johnson) and their works to China for a non-profit exhibition and cultural exchange activities with a group of leading Chinese artists and calligraphers. The event was held at the State Guest House Beijing with the ceremony being opened and addressed by cultural representatives and the Australian Deputy Ambassador to China Mr. Gerard Thompson and attended by Cultural Councillor Maree Ringland and Former Ambassador to China Dr. Geoff Raby AO. In February 2019, the foundation collaborated with Hurun Art Foundation (China) for another non-profit art exhibition in Barangaroo Sydney, which showcased 18 leading Chinese contemporary and Australian artists over 2 weeks. The next exhibition will be in February 2020 in Sydney.
