Making Art Matter by Emilya Colliver

$29.00 AUD


Artists need more support and that support can come from you. My mission is to see diverse art in everybody’s everyday life, and to help you become a leader and patron of creative projects. — Emilya Colliver


Art is about beauty, thoughts and ideas. It is about risk-taking, action, resistance, empowerment and transformation. Art can encourage values of care, kindness, compassion, social justice and cooperation.

Making Art Matter builds a bridge between artists and organisations, governments and the corporate world. It will help you to bring art into your life, workplace and suburb. This book offers insights into the art world and how artists work, what motivates them and the practicalities of what they do.

If you want to collaborate with an artist on a project at any scale, this book is the ideal starting point. We explore the possibilities open to you, so as a patron or client you can start new trends; find the right artist for the project; and deliver successful, original and engaging artwork for your workplace or community.

Emilya Colliver has held a pivotal position in the art world in Australia and the UK for over 20 years. She is the founder and owner of the art consultancy company, Art Pharmacy.
