Art4refugees is an art exhibition and cultural celebration held in support of SCARF (Strategic Community Assistance to Refugee Families) – a non-profit organisation that provides friendship-based resettlement support to refugee entrants in the Illawarra. Art4refugees exhibits a diverse range of artworks contributed by both local and national artists.
SCARF receives no ongoing government funding, relying heavily on its major annual fundraiser Art4Refugees – a celebration of art and culture with all proceeds from the sale of generously donated artworks going directly to SCARF programs. This year’s exhibition will be held at the beautiful iAccelerate space at Innovation Campus, University of Wollongong.
Many IAVA members have generously donated their artworks to this worthy cause in the past. The organisers are hoping that this year, IAVA members will again step up.
