The Know My Name initiative is a national program of exhibitions, commissions, education programs, partnerships and creative collaborations that celebrate the diversity and creativity of Australian women artists.

The initiative includes a number of programs that have been supported by a dedicated group of donors. Their generosity has helped support artists, tour exhibitions, create new learning programs for audiences of all abilities and produce a publication.

Become a Know My Name supporter by making a tax-deductible donation. Your support will help us continue this important initiative and elevate the ongoing achievements of women artists.
