Our programs use visual arts to help ensure all members of our society are valued and engaged. Your support is greatly appreciated.

We have been successful in obtaining a Matched Funding grant from Creative Partnerships Australia (CPA).
By making a donation today and joining The Lester Collective today, your contribution will help us to achieve our goal and be matched by the CPA’s funding. The CPA will match the total figure raised and we have until March 2023 to raise these funds. But we can’t do this without you!
This money will be used to build our capacity to take The Lester Prize to regional Western Australia. Find out more about The Lester Collective below.

We are on the hunt for a group of passionate volunteers to join our team for the 2021 Exhibition and Events Season. This is a unique experience to work on a major national arts event that showcases artists from across Australia.
Our mission is to deliver high quality exhibitions, events and programs for artists and the greater community, using visual arts to celebrate the practice of portraiture. Volunteers make this mission possible.
VOLUNTEERING AT THE LESTER PRIZE
We require dedicated, well-informed volunteers who enjoy interacting with the public and promoting the exhibition, the artists and the artworks with our community.
The Lester Prize volunteer program provides structured shifts for both weekday and weekend volunteer work, allowing individuals the opportunity to work in varying stages of the exhibition season in roles including gallery invigilation, opening nights and events.
Background in the Arts, history or education is encouraged, but not a pre-requisite. We will provide you with recognition, support, training, and information required to undertake your duties.
To express your interest in joining The Lester Prize’s Volunteer program, please register using the form below. Volunteers are selected by interview.
