This is possible through private and corporate donations as well as our annual fund raising events (Creature in 2008, Spawn in 2009, Swarm in 2011). While a nominal amount is required to pay our society expenses, the bulk of our donations contribute to fulfilling our Mandate — that is to give the practical support towards the health and well being of those in our visual arts community.
