Govt Provides $1M in Catalyst Arts Funding
Tuesday, 26th April 2016 at 11:04 am

The federal government is to provide $1 million through its Catalyst – Australian Arts and Culture Fund to acquire, preserve and maintain the family home of one of Australia’s greatest landscape painters.

The Cedars in the Adelaide Hills was the home of renowned Australian landscape artist Sir Hans Heysen OBE and his family, including his daughter and significant painter Nora Heysen AM.

The Hans Heysen Foundation’s Heritage Appeal has been raising funds to acquire, preserve and maintain The Cedars which includes the family home and Heysen’s 1913 studio, said to be one of the oldest purpose-built studios in Australia, a collection of original works, as well as land.

“As an artistic centre in the Adelaide Hills, this precinct will continue to be a place to honour and be inspired by a family at the centre of Australia’s art history,” Federal Minister for the Arts Senator Mitch Fifield said.

“The acquisition is part of stage one of the project which will help ensure it continues to be open to the public.”

Mount Barker District Council has contributed $1.5 million to stage one of the project, with corporate and private donors also contributing.

The government said its Catalyst fund is investing in innovative projects and initiatives from arts and cultural organisations, with a focus on supporting small to medium arts organisations nationally and applications are open at all times.
