The generosity of individuals and organisations committed to showcasing contemporary Australian visual arts globally ensures the continued success of Australia at the International Art Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia. Donations and corporate sponsorships provide three quarters of the funding for this project. There are many ways individuals, families and companies can be part of Australia’s representation at the Venice Biennale through giving and attending the exhibition.

Venice champions' program

More than 200 like-minded individuals give to enable Australia’s participation in the Venice Biennale. This co-investment model also offers opportunities for our supporters to travel to Europe and connect with the world oldest contemporary art biennale and the historic city of Venice through participation in the Venice Champions Program. While in Venice, Champions enjoy a specially curated program of activities, experiences and events led by the Chair of the Venice Council; Kerry Gardner AM.

Champions Programs 2022: We are currently crafting our Champions’ program for 2022. The program will be offered for supporters to experience Australia’s 2022 exhibition in our national pavilion within the Giardini della Biennale, but also a beautifully curated program of events around Venice.

Next year, and into 2022, Champions will be invited to make a tax deductible donation to the exhibition and pay a registration fee to cover the hospitality and experiences they’ll enjoy in Venice and at the Venice Biennale 2022.

Priority Reservation: While we wait for Federal Government advice on international travel, you can reserve your place in the 2022 Champions’ programs at no cost here. Priority reservations will be at no obligation, but will ensure your place on the Champions’ program and it will help us plan the activities and events that you will enjoy in Venice.


Refund Policy

The Australia Council will refund the registration fee for the ‘Aus at Venice’ Champions’ program up to sixty days prior to each program. All donations are gifts freely given, and as such are not subject to refund.
