The Lock-Up’s commitment to delivering outstanding artistic programming would not be possible without the generous support of government funding bodies, corporate sponsors and private donors.
The Lock Up is a not-for-profit organisation that relies on the support of generous people like you.
In 2014, the nineteenth-century police station was reimagined as a key contemporary art space in the Hunter region and quickly became nationally recognised as a space that pushes the boundaries of arts contemporary art practice, and that supports artists by providing new and exciting commissioning opportunities.
Your generosity through our Patrons Program will help us on our mission to continue supporting artists in the creation of new and experimental works. All money donated to The Lock-Up’s Patron Program is tax deductible.
All money raised will help foster our dynamic vision, supporting artists, both now and into the future.
