Asia Society Australia, in partnership with the National Gallery of Victoria, will host an event next Thursday, 2 August from 8:30 – 10 am on the changing nature of philanthropy in Melbourne and New York. This program is a part of a series of events coinciding with an exhibition from the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) at NGV. Bringing together cultural, industry and education leaders from across Melbourne, NGV is presenting live conversations, performance, dining activations, education exchange, business forums and community participation that tell the stories behind Melbourne and New York across a three-month period (June – August).

This program will examine how giving has evolved since the establishment of landmark institutions like MoMa and Asia Society by the Rockefellers. Live from New York and Melbourne, the event will feature conversations between Asia Society Trustee, Charles Rockefeller and Asia Society Vice President of Partnerships, Christine Davis and a live, on stage discussion, with the CEO of the Ian Potter Foundation, Craig Connelly.

Join us as we explore the emerging models and funding sources for building multi-generational foundations, institutions and centers of excellence.
