Just launched in 2019

A new ARROW seed-funding project in partnership with the Sydney Opera House.

Goal? To commission one emerging artist for this major public art commission every year, from here on, building legacy.

Utzon’s vision to support the visual arts, as part of the core work for the Sydney Opera House, is now underway.

Some of Jason’s art that has featured in recent exhibitions is shown below. Stay tuned for previews and information about the exhibition at the SOH this year.



Dance Rites


2018 is our final year as foundation partner…

Our Dance Rites journey began in 2014, when we seed-funded the pilot program, which was an incredible success.

Working together with the Sydney Opera House and Rhoda Roberts, we have nurtured Dance Rites which is a yearly event. Participants come from all around Australia, including remote areas.

Dance Rites provides a national platform for the transmission of cultural knowledge from one generation to the next and from one community to another ... It has become a significant national event, demonstrating how the world’s oldest living culture continues to flourish, thrive and evolve.”

Rhoda Roberts AO, Sydney Opera House Head of First Nations Programming
