As the peak body for visual artists, craftspeople and designers in South Australia, we call on you to join our community and help us uplift, engage and grow a state of creativity.
The escalating cost of living is not just a financial issue; it’s a threat to artists’ ability to sustain their creative practice and careers, putting at risk the very creativity that underpins our state.


By supporting us, you can directly contribute to uplifting artists’ income. Artists currently earn about a quarter less than the average income of the wider workforce. Last year, we provided 4,043 advice and tailored career uplifts for creatives. With your support, we can expand our programs to offer more paid opportunities for artists to showcase their practice, expand, their audiences and increase their ongoing earning potential.


Your donation will enable us to further invest in our creative and professional skills development offerings, which support artists’ thriving careers. From essentials such as low-cost public liability insurance and one-on-one professional advice to ambitious residencies, exhibitions, and mentorships, Guildhouse works with professional creatives at all stages of their careers. Your donation will support them in taking risks, creating excellent work, and ultimately achieving their goals.


We are committed to creating paid opportunities for artists at all stages of their careers. Within our programs last year we reached over 600,000 local, national and global audiences showcasing South Australian artists.  Fair remuneration for artists underscores everything we do. Your donation will go towards directly to paying artists’ fees.
