Artists enrich our world. Guildhouse supports visual artists, craftspeople & designers to build and maintain sustainable careers. We nurture and extend art practice and business development, open professional opportunities, markets and networks.

We’ve been quietly doing this work for over 50 years.  We need your help to do more.

Your gift gives artists choices.

Your gift will subside access to one of our in-demand programs and services, helping an artist get on with the business of making art.

You can contribute at any level; all are essential services which help an artist to further their career.  All donations over $2 are fully tax deductible.

With each meeting I have taken away new skills and ideas that I have integrated into my practice and seen immediate benefit.

I have discovered an appetite and an aptitude for archival and historical research and have broadened my vision and scope (on the steepest of learning curves) to encounter a range of disciplines.
