Gertrude Contemporary is supported by the Victorian Government through Creative Victoria; the Australia Council, the Federal Government's arts funding and advisory body; and through the Visual Arts and Craft Strategy, an initiative of the Australian, State and Territory Governments.




The ongoing achievement of Gertrude Contemporary would not be possible without the generous support of patronage, philanthropic foundations, in-kind sponsorship, local government and partnerships.
