We are proudly Australian, and one of Asia’s largest philanthropies, with AUD $2 billion committed to a range of global initiatives. Our team comprises over 100 employees across seven locations. 

The Arts & Culture initiative aims to create an accessible, vibrant, sustainable arts community in WA and beyond, by increasing access to world-class arts experiences and opportunities for artists. Through collaborative, co-created partnerships we support artists and cultural organisations to achieve mutual goals. We have a focus on our home state of Western Australia, but we are engaged with arts and cultural practise nationally and globally.
